Absolutely. You should hire a lawyer to go to court to recall the warrant. A lawyer can do this without you present if the underlying charge is a misdemeanor, so it is less risky for you.

I think you can count on the fact that there is probably a warrant out for your immediate arrest. I would suggest you engage an attorney and get this matter straightened out before you are calling from the jail.
