Would a minor misdemeanor of Disorderly Conduct-Intoxication show up on FBI/BCI Background check?

I had to stay in the ‘drunk tank’ for 8 hours
and then paid a 150 fine. I have applied
for a job with the school district. Is a
minor misdemeanor of Disorderly Conduct-
Intoxication in Ohio a deal breaking for
getting a job?

Because the arrest and fine are public record, it could show up on a criminal background check.  That does not mean that it will, however, only that it is possible. 
If it does show up, how much weight and concern the school district will put on it depends on their policies and procedures.  They may see it as such a minor infraction such that it will not affect the selection process.  More prudish school districts will hold it against  you and will have the legal right to do so.
