He was asking the question, "Should he contact a lawyer about sorting it out, or contact the Iowa authorities himself?"
I'd have a lawyer call for him. Also, I couldn't find anything about a failure to appear problem, legally recorded, against Jeremy. That "description" is coming from statements, without any proof that he is being arrested for that type of crime. It sounds more like he has a warrant out for him for felony assault.
If I can find more info, I'll make sure to post it here.
