Default Why would a warrant be cancelled?

Why would a warrant be cancelled? My boyfriend got arrested because he had a warrant for failure to appear. The court website for our state says the warrant was cancelled today so is it cancelled because they picked him up? Or are they letting him go?

The warrant made him subject to immediate arrest, so depending on the statutes in the jurisdiction where he was arrested, my guess is that it was cancelled once he was taken into custody.

Can only speak definitively to Texas, but when we issued a warrant, we had notations in the file. At the time the warrant was executed, there were corresponding cancel/confirm notations precisely because the warrant has to be canceled from the network.

Cancellation does not preclude the possibility of republication in the event of a release prior to disposition.
