I was going to fly from USA to India to get married. Hours before the flight my future brother in law who is in USA said that his lawyer stated that I can not fly internationally. He stated that I will be detained. The reason being is that there is a drunk in public on my record from maybe 2005.

This sounds like nonsense to me as it is a misdemeanor. I never appeared before the judge. I was not fined. I passed FBI background/fingerprint for my job. A warrant has never come up for my arrest.

I explained he situation to a friend who travels internationally all the time. He also stated that it is b.s.

Anyone else hear of or encounter a similar situation?

You should better consult a lawyer instead of a random internet message board.

If you are telling us the truth, no outstanding warrants, you are a US citizen, you aren't on any watch lists, you have a passport, etc., you can leave and come without problems. The misdemeanor as long as resolved is not an issue.

If you have an outstanding warrant, you will be arrested by US Customs upon your arrival back in the US.

This is exactly what I thought. Thanks.

Complete BS.

There are some countries where the visa forms ask about criminal history so in theory that could be a problem but that would happen when you applied for the visa, not by some mythical international flying police. I can't imagine any country will care about a PI from 2005, nor do I believe they have the resources to find out if omitted.
