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

Go back to court, explain to the Judge the reason you were late to court and have the bench warrant recalled. Make sure the Judge is nice so that you are not taken into custody.
