I was arrested back in 1999.
Basically, the arresting officer had a personal beef with me prior to an incident in which someone else robbed another person. Unfortunately, I was just in the proximity of him--didn't know him--but I witnessed the event; nonetheless the cop arrested me. I went to jail on a Friday, and I was released the following Monday, as the DA dropped the charges for "lack of evidence."
I did a good job of suppressing this incident until some other a-hole cop berated me about it recently when I called the police for something... so now it's on my mind, and I got to get it off my record so that I can put it behind me, for good... how do I do this?
Just a note of consideration, please, I already read the link to the California Courts Self Help Center's page on "Clean Up Your Criminal Records"... that page only applies to persons who have been convicted... I was not convicted of anything.
Lastly, sorry if you are a cop and I offended you in anyway, but if you are first a human being, then you would also understand my feelings after this experience... should they be negative towards the police.
