    Hi All,

    Just have a question regarding being served a "notice to appear" by the police.

    Can they issue an arrest warrant if they have reason to believe that you are avoiding them trying to serve you a "notice to appear"?

    Thank you all for your time and responses.

    Cheers,

    I assume the 'notice to appear' is from a court.

    If so, don't try to fight it. Frustrating the court will not help you in any way. It does not pay to antagonise the person who may be deciding your fate at court.
