Arrest warrants are essentially an extension of authority on behalf of Texas. What this means is that if you have an arrest warrant issued for you in San Augustine County TX, that warrant can still be executed no matter what county you are in. In order for a warrant to be created, a number of things must happen. First, officers of the peace have to present the evidence that they have collected that implicates you in a crime. If the presiding judge feels that sufficient evidence has been presented, they will then authorize and sign an arrest warrant. All warrants need to include the name of the suspect, the crime they are believed to have committed, and they all must also include the signature of the presiding judge.
