How was it that a police officer told you about this? What did he want you to do?

If you do absolutely nothing, there will be a warrant out for your arrest if you enter the state of Connecticut. You can avoid Connecticut, but the warrant could cause collateral problems. Connecticut will not come to Florida to find you and bring you in, nor will they extradite you if you're stopped for any reason by a police officer elsewhere in the country. States don't go to that kind of trouble on misdemeanor charges. But knowledge of it could surface when you least want it to, such as with an employment background check or when you go to renew your driver's license and cause you problems.

Warrants don't expire. The only way to get rid of it is to turn yourself in on it and deal with the criminal case that you're wanted for. That, of course, would be the other alternative you have, though you can expect to sit in on bond if you do, unless the court is willing to reduce it at your arraignment.

If you're inclined to address the harassment charge, the way to do it would be to first contact a Connecticut attorney who could do what he could to broker a voluntary surrender and to expedite you through the system so that you could get a more reasonable bond set.
