    I wonder if he's contacted an attorney yet?

    Absurd. I'd be suing to get that criminal record expunged and probably some damages.

    I may be wrong but I don't think you have a criminal record unless you are actually convicted of something.

    I don't think he should have been arrested in the first place, but that was a judgement call on the part of the police when they ran the permit and it came back expired.

    Ugh. What a load of hooey...

    Over-regulation is just a variation of the Heisenberg principle (uncertainty principle: Definition from Answers.com), "It is impossible for our government to regulate something without screwing it up".

    And how do they make up the time he lost in a jail cell? The experience he went through? There's more to being arrested than just sitting and waiting.

    don't hold your breath on that... you would die of suffocation way before that thought crossed their mind.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    "While an arrest will not necessarily lead to a criminal conviction, it may nonetheless in some jusrisdictions have serious ramifications such as absence from work, social stigma, and in some cases, the legal obligation to disclose an arrest when a person applies for a job, a loan or a professional license. In the US, a person who was not found guilty after an arrest can remove his arrest record through an expungement or Finding of Factual Innocence. A legal action is sometimes filed against the government for wrongful arrest." -Wikipedia (not the best source, I know)

    Thanks for the info. I've run across a few instances where an application asked if you had ever been arrested, but not many and none that I can think of in recent years. Most of the time, it's something like "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?"

    Poor man, he really did not deserve what happened to him. I do not blame the LEO that arrested him, he just did his job, but I hope that Mr. Keathley contacts an attorney directly and sues the life out of them, and then get that criminal record expunged. Things like that shall not happen.

    Well, jail time at about $100,000.00 per hour will make some of the hurt go away. Part of the law suit would be for the charge to be expunged. Throw in another $500,000.00 for pain and suffering, etc.

    I think he'll come out on the winning end of this before it's over.
