I have been arrested on DUI and case is pending. If my employer does a background check does it show as 'DUI case pending'. The reason I am asking is, I am planning to get my badge renewed before my final court date. And it requires background check. I would like to go for it if nothing shows up when my employer checks.

Does the officer has reasonable suspicion of DUI for a valid stop based on the facts below?
I was stopped for illegal turn, failure to maintain lane, and arrested for dui. The officer claims he witnessed me make a uturn in an intersection and began following me in which his police report says i was all over the road. The U-turn nor weaving is captured on video, however the driving that is on video captures no traffic violations nor bad driving. I was found guilty of the alleged U-turn in city court, appealed and the case was dismissed at the circuit court level b/c the officer did not show up.
