647f 849b2


I have a secret security clearance

(government job) and, unfortunately,

had a little too much to drink last

weekend so I ended up being brought

to the drunk tank per 647f (drunk in

public). I was then released per

849b2 which considers my visit to

the drunk tank strictly a detention

and not an arrest in CA. My question

is whether or not this is something I

should inform my work about? The

cop at the jail said that he didn't

think so since this is something that

wouldn't be on my permanent record

(i.e. not charged) . Can someone

please give me some input on this?
