When I first came to US 13 year back, I came on a B1 and was send back from the POE after me withdrawing my application and was asked to come back on H1B. I was detained the night and was send back the next day with I-275 served 22 CFR 41.122 (h) (3). When I applied for my 485 my company immigration team mentioned to put "No" in the arrested question. I recently pulled my fingerprint record from FBI and it states the following
1 - Arrested or Received
Agency - USINS Philadelphia (PAINSPH00)
Charge 1-18 USC 1001 Violation of immigration law
Sentence - Expedited Removal
Record Update - 2013/03/13
My PD for 485 is current and got my BG is open and it will take 6 months response to make a decision. Should I ammend my 485 with "Yes" to the arrest question.
You have been caught "lying" on an immigration Form, to obtain an immigration benefit. That's how the law looks at it.
In addition to immediately informing the "company lawyers" of the situation, I suggest you schedule a private consultation with a competent immigration lawyer in your area as well.
