"First of all I was unaware of a bad check being written. I was never notified also"
Sorry, but that's not believable. Banks issue statements every month, and your bank statement would reflect a bad check and a bad check fee. Even if you negligently fail to keep track of your bank balance, you're chargeable with how much money you have in your account at any given time. If your balance is $200 and you write a $500 check, then you know or should know that the check will bounce. Whether the difference between actual and constructive knowledge makes any difference depends on the applicable law, and I'm not sure about AZ law in this regard.
As for the rest of your post, there's no way for you to get more information without exposing yourself to arrest. I would strongly suggest you contact a local criminal defense attorney to look into this on your behalf.
