There are many reasons to check into arrest records in Massachusetts even if it's just to satisfy your own personal curiosity.

What is an Arrest or Criminal Record?

What Records are Available in Massachusetts?

In Mass, you can receive either a fingerprint supported report or a report based on name. Here are the differences:

Name-based

This is the easiest record type to obtain because you only need a name and birth date information on the subject. After submitting a request, the state court records are checked to see if there is information on you. Any court records that the search reveals are public information. This will only give you information about the commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Fingerprint-based

If you do a records search based on fingerprint information, you can get a more complete search. This search checks the fingerprints submitted against all fingerprint records in the country.
