The best thing for you to do is to hire an attorney to intervene in this matter as soon as possible.  Running is obviously not an option. And living in fear of arrest is not one either.  If the attorney intervenes then he or she can negotiate your turning your self in peacefully - who wants to be cuffed - and payment of the support.
