Arrest Record Of Ex-Democratic Director Expunged

A judge has expunged the arrest record of a former executive director of the Missouri Democratic Party.

An order Friday by St. Louis Circuit Judge Robert Dierker says the arrest of Matthew Teter following a domestic incident was based on false information. The order also says there's no probable cause to believe he committed an offense and that no charges will be pursued.

Teter said he was forced out of his job at the Democratic Party in February 2012 after the arrest.

He most recently served as the campaign manager for Lewis Reed. He parted ways with the candidate a few months before the election, saying they had different ideas on how to run the campaign. Reed later lost his bid to unseat St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay.
