    do think USA with stop me at border when i fly from UK. Bcos i Said on the E-visa for Canada that i was arrested and sent them my police certificate and that was rejected.

    USA share records with CANADA on evisa so it would show up on the USA border PC when i give them passport ?

    I got arrested for possession of Class A and B and for taking a car without the owner's permission although I didn't commit any of the crimes above, unfortunately I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was put in custody and then released hours later with no charges.

    I was flapping in panic a few days beforehand when I read on the embassy site that they say it is not recommended to travel with an ESTA even if you have been arrested with no charges. I looked at this forum and did what you guys suggested.

    I got in with no issues at all. All they will do is ask you questions on why you are coming to USA and a little about your background, they asked me:

    "Why are you coming to USA?" - Holiday
    "How long are you staying for? - 2 weeks
    "Are you with anyone today?" - With my friends
    "What do you do for a living?" - explained my job

    One thing I do recommend is to keep your phone away until you get past security, they stopped my friend and asked the same sort of questions.
