You can go online to official government sites to find out whether or not there is a local warrant out for your arrest. Just go to the city, county, state or federal website where you think there might have a warrant out for you. Also, you can call the clerk in any court in the state that you believe the warrant may be in because each state maintains a warrant database that can be accessed from any state court. Do not identify yourself, just ask if there is an outstanding warrant for your name. Additionally, you can check the public records at the county courthouse. In fact you can use the computers at the court to search warrants. Finally, there are a number of 3rd party services that have websites that can perform a warrant search for you. Some are free, and others charge a fee.
