What will happen if the paperwork regarding my arrest is incorrect?

I was charged with possession of different methamphetamine. a Class 4 felony. The address that they arrested me at was from what the address was on the paperwork. I was pulled over and they found the drugs in my car and arrested me at 1 address, 2 1/2 miles away from where my paperwork said that I was arrested The towing impound paperwork actually has the correct address. So basically all of the paperwork contradicts each other to say that I was arrested pulled over and car impounded and dangerous drugs found in my car twice in the same night 5 minutes apart and 2 1/2 miles apart. Can this actually cause my case to be dropped?

No, your criminal case will not be dropped simply because they got the address wrong on your paperwork as to where you were arrested.  If there is an error, it does not change that there was probable cause to arrest you beause they found drugs in your car.  The police officer will testify to that.  If you have evidence to present proving the drugs were not yours, you should present it.  Otherwise, make a deal with the prosecutor.  Your case is not going to be dismissed on this technicality.
