Legal Question in Criminal Law in Iowa

Virginia capias for initial minor offense

My son did not appear in court following an underage possession of alcohol citation and received a capias. Now he is in another state and would like to clear this up. Is it possible to transfer the charge to a court in the second state so he can continue to care for my elderly parents?
