An arrest warrant and a bench warrant both serve the same purpose - - they command the defendant to appear before the court. An arrest warrant is only issued after a judge has determined there is a probable cause based on a complaint or indictment. The judge must determine that a reasonable person would believe the defendant committed the alleged crime based on the facts submitted to the court. On the other hand, a bench warrant is issued by a judge for failure to appear or failure to pay a fine. The bench warrant is intended to force the defendant to appear before the court because he has failed to comply with a previous order of the court.
