Open Container of Alcohol on My Record

Will my arrest for having an open container of alcohol stay on my criminal record?

Will my arrest for having an open container of alcohol stay on my criminal record?

It depends on what you did after your arrest. Even if you're not arrested, do not pay the ticket. Do not enter a plea of guilty or no contest. That will help you in determining what happens with your record down the road. If your charges are dismissed because you hired experienced counsel, then the chances of your arrest or even the charge being on your record can at least be expunged.
