Generally no. If the DUI is still pending some prosecutors will dismiss if they have proof that you will join the armed forces and the charge is the only thing holding you back. If already convicted, you'll need to consult an attorney to see if your state allows an expungement or something similar. Check with a recruiter too because they may make an exception. The general rule is they won't accept you with a criminal history.
Go to the agency that made the arrest. The substation or main HQ, Records Department. Give it at least 3-5 days before it it is available from the day of the incident. You must be a party in the report. Depending on their policy they may charge you or give you the first copy free. Usu about 7-15 dollars. The names and addresses of individuals may be redacted (blacked-out) for liability reasons but nearly all the information you are seeking will be there. Get a lawyer. DO NOT go to court on your own or whoever this is for.
