How do you find arrest records for free?

I have a problem with a neighbor who has some threatening and psychotic behavior. I believe he has been arrested a number of times and may have spent jail time.
So how do I find out the details of his criminal record so I can figure out how I should deal with him?

He's done some pretty bizarre stuff and comes over to the house in the middle of the night sometimes. Always wants to borrow money. One time he came over with a Bible and started shouting verses out and barking like a dog.

How do I find out what the story is on this guy?
