I was intoxicated and tried to come over into other people's apartment but did not break into it. Someone called the police and the officer handcuffed me and took me to the police station. I answered all the questions they had, and the officer really liked me and I as one of the officer's son went to same school that I go. They did not photograph me or finger print me.

I was arrested for Public Intoxication after my graduation

Hello! I was arrested for Public Intoxication after my graduation in 2011 and then bailed out of jail. After couple of days I left US to my country for good and never came back (and not planning). Recently, I found out online that I have outstanding warrants (PI + fail to appear-court). Will this appear on my Police certificate if I request it from overseas? How can I pay the fees and clean my record (not guilty/no conviction). I am not in US, but I can pay the charges online. Thank you
