If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, you can request the certified register of actions from the courthouse to show that the fine was already paid off. As long as you respond with evidence and / or an explanation, everything should be alright.
Don't freak out, the USCIS letter just isn't worded well and I don't think they are saying they think you've been arrested. I assume you answered "yes" to the question that asks if you've ever been arrested, detained, or cited and they're asking for evidence relating to the reason you answered "yes." In your case this would be copies of the citations (if available) or records of the citations, as well as proof that any outstanding fines or tickets have been paid. I think it would be worth your while to track down all the records, just for your own peace of mind, even if it is kind of a pain because they're located in different counties. Oftentimes it's possible to call the county sherriff's office or county court and speak to their records clerk who can mail you the records for a small fee.
