Do I have an arrest or criminal record? I am planning to

Do I have an arrest or criminal record?I am planning to apply to a new F-1 visa as an international student, as my current student visa has been expired.Yet, two months ago, I was given a traffic ticket on I-94 MI for a traffic misdemeanor charge -- improper use of plate, and the police officer confiscated my driver license.I finally went to the court to pay $100 bond to take back my license, and employed an attorney to help me with the plea bargain. The charge has finally reduced to a civil infraction (improper display of plate) from misdemeanor.I am concerning whether I have arrest and criminal record when I am filling the immigration form, as the charge eventually has been reduced to infraction level, and I have never been sent to jail/ bond court but merely a citation.
