Probably, unless you enter through TX, for example, and your DWI charge is pending in TX. It is wise to assume that a bench warrant was issued by the court in which you were charged for your failure to appear. Whatever you do, you should immediately contact a criminal defense lawyer and obtain advice about clearing the charges with the court. DWI carries substantial penalties which can effect your driving rights for years. It will always be there to haunt you if you don't deal with it. Your best advice is to get right with the court in which your charges are pending as soon as possible.
