“They can wipe out the arrest record. They do it all the time when they arrest the wrong person.”

Not really. In Colorado, records cannot be expunged by law, they can only be sealed, but people must still report the arrest when asked on government forms.

I work for the government and we are not allowed to ask if someone has been arrested because it could have been a wrongful arrest. We only ask about convictions.
