What's a capias?

I vaguely remember having a warrant for arrest back in the 1980s when I was a mere lad, for an unpaid speeding ticket.  I remember being informed by mail of this just as I was departing on a road trip to Florida, and, again if I remember rightly, I went anyway, though trepidatious. 

In fact I was pulled over for speeding again in Georgia and nothing happened - in fact I think he didn't even give me a ticket, but I could be wrong.  So either there wasn't in fact an actual warrant issued, or it didn't show up in a different state.  I remember that I did have to go to downtown St. Louis and pay the ticket when I returned from the holiday.

that may have been a capias.

a capias is a 'civil arrest warrant'   if you default on a civil judgment, the plaintiff can apply for a capias to have you hauled in to a judge to explain why you havent paid.

No, I am generally pretty law abiding and the few times Ive broken the law (weed, traffic, gambling, shoplifting as a teenager) Ive gotten away with it.

Oh I see..  I'm not sure about it - it is after all a 'crime' of sorts to speed.  But yes, its apparently no big deal.  I used to get a lot of tickets, from age 16-25 for speeding.  Then from about 25-33 it seemed to me like I actually got stopped more, for just plain old bad driving (I was always a kind of vague, wandering sort of driving - just didn't take it too seriously.. driving a really big car will tend to encourage this), but I rarely got ticketed for it, just warned.

No, but the police stopped me about 10 times so far in the last 7 years since I had my driving license for routine traffic stops, out of which I had to take about 5 alcohol tests. None positive though.

I think I had 3 speeding tickets in the past 7 years.

No. Broken the law before for drug and piracy reasons before and a couple of times for shoplifting when I was young.

I've done plenty of things I could have been arrested for, but wasn't. A cop once yelled at me for blasting my music too loud at 1 in the morning when I was out with friends, but that's it.

I may have stolen an old world atlas from my school back in ES and never returned some old books never used by anybody to my old library in Riyadh, but my illegality stops there.
