Hi,given the info below does this constitute an actual arrest?Approx 12 years ago I was drunk and was walking home with a friend of mine when we were stopped by the gardai. I was brought to a garda station with my friend. We were both handcuffed and driven to the station but i can't remember what we were actually arrested for. Probably because we were drunk and had an open bottle of wine with us. Anyway when we got to the station we gave our details and they recorded our height. I was put in a cell for about 20mins. I wasn't searched at all and i wasn't formally questioned. After about 20mins had elapsed I was free to go and no charges brought. I didn't receive any documentation of the arrest and hadn't thought about the matter until recently when thinking about applying for a us visa. My question is will there be a record of this occurrence on my file? IE custody record etc? Will it be deleted at this stage? No other arrests or convictions since.does what happened me actually constitute an actual arrest? Will this affect my US Visa application?Thanks
