In the state of California can you have a felony arrest removed from your record if the charges are dropped?

Not without petitioning the court for a finding of factual innocence. These can be very difficult, and required a skilled attorney to handle. Even with a skilled attorney, I've seen those things overturned on appeal.
Only by a formal motion to the court, and a showing of proof that it was actually without any basis or probable cause. That is a tough act.
If you can do so, and if serious about hiring counsel to help you in this, feel free to contact me.
Make sure you do it soon because there is a two year statute of limitations.
