Thank you for your question.

If there is a warrant, he is going to get arrested at some point.

If he turns himself in, the odds are that his bail is going to be less. He can then fight the charges from the outside as opposed to being investigated. Though the charge may be unfair and trumped up by his neighbors, he is still going to have to fight the charge through the court system. That means making bail, then hiring a good defense attorney.
