A friend of mine wants to use me as a reference for a police officer job, he has in the past, but two weeks ago I was arrested for DUI. I don't really want to tell him I was arrested for DUI, but don't want to harm his chances for a new job. Will the police department look me up if he uses me as a reference?

DUI's are looked on the same way as other crimes such as drug possession. If you want to help your friend you should let him know what's going on. If you can't do that, you should politely decline.
