How to fill out an expungement form?

The expungement form is self explanatory except for one part. On #1 it says: (Arrested) by an officer of the (law enforcement agency) at (location), Maryland, as a result of the following incident……then has a blank space where you fill in the rest. I’m not sure what to put in that space. I thought it may be the charges but on #2 it asks for the charges. My case was possession on marijuana. I was arrested in a car after being pulled over and later acquitted.

For this type of question, you should really consult with a local attorney who is more familiar with the local expungement process so you can find out exactly what particular information they are looking for.  That being said, based upon the information that you have provided it sounds like they are just looking for a short description of the incident that led to your arrest.  For example, "as a result of being arrested for possession of marijuana following a motor vehicle stop on [date] in the town of ________, as more fully described in police incident report _________."  Nevertheless, I'm sure a local attorney could clear this up fairly quickly.  Good luck.
