My mother is an experienced nurse looking for work, but is concerned about something that may be on her record. About a year ago, her and I had an argument that got out of hand and she grabbed my arm, giving me a minor scratch. She had been drinking. I was upset, and called the police to see if they could just get her to leave the house until things settled down. We were at my elderly grandmothers house where we were all living together, and I was responsible for her and my 15 year old son at the time, and we didn't really have a good place to go, which is why I wanted my mother to leave instead of all of us. The police came and said that because she'd been drinking, she couldn't drive without facing arrest, and so I decided to gather my grandma and son and leave to diffuse the situation. The police asked my mother to sit quietly and wait for us to leave. She was sitting, only she was angry that we were having to take the family van, and continued talking after the officer asked her to stop, and it made him angry, so he took her in after all, charging her with domestic violence. I was really upset about this, because it was never my intention to have her arrested. My question is, can these things show up on a background check and keep her from being hired when applying for work and with a statement of explanation from me, is there any way to have this and a recent DWI, expunged from her record? Thank you.
