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.
