Question: I have a perplexing travel problem that is unique and interesting. In 1970, I was arrested for possession of a small amount of marijuana, which was then a felony. I was acquitted and have no criminal record. In the last 25 years, I have made perhaps 15 trips abroad, reentered the U.S. and gone through immigration with no problems. On my most recent trip abroad, immigration in Miami took me into a holding area and held me for about 60 minutes before talking to me. It turns out my felony arrest from 43 years earlier showed up on the computer screen.

Cancun would rather be known for powdery beaches and Windex-blue waters, but on Wednesday it was the scene of an explosive corruption scandal: Did its mayor secretly work on behalf of two of Mexico's most bloodthirsty drug-trafficking organizations? The charges against Mayor Gregorio Sanchez, who is on leave to run for governor of the state of Quintana Roo, add new force to worries that organized crime groups have infiltrated Mexican politics at all levels and are undermining the country's fragile moves toward a real democracy.

Oakland defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested Sunday morning on a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief after allegedly causing a commotion at a neighbor's house while inebriated. We probably wouldn't even be discussing his arrest right now ... if it weren't for that unfortunate mug shot . Now I don't want to make fun of the man -- like I said, not his finest moment. I'll just describe the mug shot as "unflattering" and let it go at that. Bryant, who was held on $1,000 bond after being booked at 9:24 a.m. Sunday, has 10 1/2 sacks in four seasons with the Raiders and is due to be an unrestricted free agent on March 12. Can you imagine potential employers searching for information about Bryant online and that's what pops onto their screens?

The deputy who arrested Mel Gibson in 2006 for drunk driving sued the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on Tuesday, alleging that it retaliated against him because he resisted requests from superiors to remove the actor's anti-Semitic slurs from an initial arrest report. Deputy James Mee said that in the four years since the incident, he has been passed over for promotions and had his job performance unfairly scrutinized. Because the deputy is Jewish, his attorneys said, he was unfairly suspected of leaking details of Gibson's tirade to the media.

The Supreme Court agreed to decide whether a Secret Service agent can be held liable for arresting a Colorado man who confronted then-Vice President Dick Cheney and told him his "policies in Iraq are disgusting. " The justices will consider an issue potentially significant to all Americans — whether they can criticize public officials without fear of arrest. But the case before the court is complicated in two ways. First, it involves Secret Service agents who have a special duty to act quickly and decisively to protect the president and vice president from harm.
