Re: not going to court.

I would urge you to face the music and go to court. Arrest warrants have this tendency to re-appear, years later, and always at the most inconvenient and embarrassing possible moment, such as while you are on the way to your daughter's wedding, or while you just happen to have someone else's stash in the glove compartment.

Although North Carolina might not have you extradited for the DUI and Failure to Appear charges, they almost certainly would request that Virginia DMV authorities suspend your license to drive.
