I live in State of New York with people I don't like. 3 summers ago, I had an argument with them concerning a huge amount of money I loaned them 8 years ago. Got upset and had 2 glasses of wine. Kept arguing with me and told them I was leaving the house because I couldn't stand being with them. Drove car out of the driveway
to other side of street, immediately knew it was a bad idea because of drinking, and moved it back to my driveway. In the meantime, they called 911 to report me drinking and driving
. Police showed up, but I had left the house and walked to a friend's. Police never spoke to me or witnessed the incident, and they left. These people told police they were "concerned" about me and therefore called 911.
I am a retired flight attendant. Recently, I applied for a PT customer service job in 3 different FL cities but have been turned down. I am wondering if this "hearsay" evidence that was probably reported to the Bronx precinct is something that would show up on an aviation background check.
As far as I am concerned, anyone could call police to make any kind of a complaint on a person, especially if they did not like them. It does not seem fair that a "hearsay report" such as this would show up on a background check, since police never even saw me, talked to me, or witnessed me start the car. I have NEVER ever driven while intoxicated, and I realized this immediately and backed my car into the driveway.
Can you tell me a definite answer to this question? Also, if it is allowable to be reported in a background check, what would you suggest I do to get it off there.
I might add that I travel extensively between FL and NY due to my flight privileges, and I have a FL DL and FL insurance
because I am originally from there and have a FL address. However, I am a legal resident of NY State. I hesitate to go down to the Bronx precinct to investigate this because I am afraid this will be another issue. I cannot afford the exhorbitant NY State insurance rates, and this is the reason I have FL insurance.
Other than these 2 things that could possibly show up, I have absolutely nothing in my background check that would show up--not even a speeding ticket.
I really do not think the FL driver's license with the NY state legal residence would be a problem (but maybe it is); but I am afraid that this "hearsay" evidence of DWI reported to the police in a 911 call could be hurting me. It was a stupid thing for me to do, and I realized it as soon as I sat in the car and immediately brought car back to driveway within about 45 seconds of driving it out,
I have not been stopped by the police for any reason while driving for at least 10 years, so I do have a good driving record.
Any help and/or suggestions from someone who understands aviation background checks and legalities is much appreciated.
