Does a excessive noise warning go on your record anywhere?

Asked 10 months ago - Portage, MI

The police checked my ID and told me to keep the noise down, I complied. I was not issued a ticket or any other paperwork from the police. Music was a bit too loud and everyone present was over 21 and drinking. I received a letter from my apartment complex days later telling me they received notice of the incident reminding me to be a good neighbor by keeping the noise down. BUT will this show up on my "permanent" record anywhere?
