*A capias warrant is essentially an order to arrest and detain an individual for the purpose of guaranteeing a court appearance. 23BA-CR01860 notes “Pursuant to Rule 33.01 et seq. the Court finds that the Defendant's failure to appear demonstrates that the Defendant's promise alone is not sufficient to reasonably assure the appearance of the Defendant."
