Canadian friend wants to come to USA but he's afraid he won't be admitted because he was arrested but later acquitted. Would this be a problem?

An arrest, without actually being charged, does not make a person inadmissible to the US. From Canadians Requiring Visas:

Furthermore, Canadians who have been deported or removed from the United States, or Canadians with a criminal record, including for driving under the influence, must satisfy other requirements to gain entry to the United States.

If your friend does not have a criminal record in Canada, then there is no problem with admissibility on that point.
