Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you paid the citation, but they still have a warrant, you are going to have to appear in the court where the warrant was issued with your proof of payment to get the warrant recalled. This is the only way to get the warrant removed, appear and show proof of payment to the court so the judge can recall the warrant. If you cannot appear personally, you would need to have a local attorney go in your place with the proof and they can get the warrant cancelled by the court.

My question is if I go into Alabama Motor Vehicle Department to get an Identification will I be arrested on the spot for a warrant out of louisiana

Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, if there is a bench warrant and not just an administrative warrant, yes, Alabama has no choice but to arrest you and contact LA to see if they want to extradite you (most times they will refuse to do so on a traffic case though). It still means they will hold you for a bit until they find out if LA will come and pick you up though and that is why resolving it in LA is what you need to do.
