As cliche as this is, I have a friend that was arrested for brandishing
about 5 years ago. My understanding of the events are someone
called the police saying he had a gun. The police came out found him
in his home still in uniform (armed security) from work. The police
saw, this laughed it off and left. A full month later, a detective going
over the case thought there was enough to convict him, the police
came out and arrested him on a warrent for brandishing. Went to
trial and the judge dismissed the charges.
Now to the question, His work needs him to get a concealed permit
for the site he is being transfered to. Would that arrest keep him
from gaining a concealed permit? The his lawyer had the arrest expunged from his record.
Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward, and freedom will be defended
I would say no, it won't harm his getting a permit. If it does he and his attorney can file an appeal with the Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court. Believe it or not but you can still be arrested in Virginia for spiting on the sidewalk. Most if not all the judges would laugh it out the door.
No. He was only arrested, not convicted of the charge. The charges were dismissed and if the arrest was expunged from his record as tyou say, it shouldn't even show up on his background check.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Yep, no conviction no problem. Even if it wasn't expunged it was 5yrs ago and a misdemeanor so no problem.

He's good to go. Doesn't even need to disclose it on his application.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
I'd put it down on the application anyways (it asks for incidents involving an arrest) but it shouldn't affect anything.

He should be fine but I sure hope he filed a complaint against that detective!!!

Almost the exact same thing happened to me. Funny.
