After a domestic dispute in my apartment about three and a half years ago, the police showed up and asked my boyfriend and I who had been physical first. I was honest, and said it was me, as I had shoved him after finding he had been intoxicated. They took me into custody, and drove me to a detention facility (not jail), where I spent three days. After I was released, I found he had been arrested a few hours after I had for a DUI, and he was in jail. I went to court a month later, spent time with a public defender, and my case was thrown out, as it had been my first offense. My question is: Is my arrest on my permanent record? Mind you, I have gotten several calls for jury duty since that event, I am told they only choose people who haven't had any legal problems.
