Arrested for weapons offense, will this go on record?
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
We lit a smoke bomb in a college dorm. I held out a lighter and my friend lit the smoke bomb and chucked it down the hall. The fire dept. came. Now, we're in trouble. We already admitted it to them and were arrested for a "weapons offense". No damage was done and no one was hurt. What could possibly happen to us? Is there any possibility this won't go on our permanent record? My friend is also on probation already in a different county for trespassing in a public park at night. What could happen to him?
