Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You can turn yourself into the court and the court can grant you bail instead of sending you to jail. I would not advise doing this without an attorney, because your attorney can make sure they arrange bail and that you will not go to jail whereas if you just walk into court there is always a likelihood the judge will send you to jail to wait a day or two before bringing you in for a bail hearing. With an attorney, most times they can have bond set and you pay and leave without going to jail on the warrant.
