Recent Expired Passport questions

I am renewing my US passport which expired last year. My

I am renewing my US passport which expired last year. My middle name is ***** ***** expired passport. I would prefer to just have my first and last name on my passport, because my middle name is ***** ***** takes up a lot of space. Am I required to put my middle name on my new passport application? I am applying for passport renewal by mail. Do I need to mail in my expired passport along with my passport application? Am I also required to provide a permanent address if I use a PO box as my mailing address? I rent and move around a lot, so I would prefer to only give people my PO box address.

I have been on holiday in the USA several times in the last

I have been on holiday in the USA several times in the last 2 years using the visa waver program. I have however approx 3 years ago been arrested on suspicion of common assault, I was never charged, I gave no admission of guilt and no further action was taken. I was innocent. I am now possibly going to be applying for an 0-1 visa, and am worried if I should have previously not used the waver program? However all my research indicated at the time of completing my ESTA that common assault even if you were found guilty is not a crime of Moral Turpitude. Simple Assault in the USA carries a max sentence of one year in prison, in the UK Common Assault is a summary offence which carries an max of 6 months in prison and / or a fine. Therefore I believe common assault is a lesser offence than simple assault when making a comparison. My sponsors immigration lawyer has asked me to complete a form that asks if I have ever been arrested (and not have I been arrested or convicted for an offense or crime involving moral turpitude?), so I will need to disclose my arrest, but I would like to have supporting information when I do, and the reassurance that by travelling on the visa waver program I have not miss-lead US immigration, because the ESTA question asks, “Have you ever been arrested or convicted for an offense or crime involving moral turpitude?” therefore I truely believe that I have answered the visa waver question honesty.
