The Motherwell striker was arrested over an alleged assault less than three hours after being named PFA Scotland player of the year on Sunday night following a vote among his fellow Clydesdale Bank Premier League players.
The 29-year-old was released without charge early on Monday morning, with the fate of the case now in the hands of the procurator fiscal, before discovering his arrest had made the national news.
But the SPL top goalscorer insists Sunday night will remain his career highlight after he was recognised for hitting 27 goals so far this season.
Higdon told the Scottish Sun: "Honestly, it's still the best night I've had as a footballer. It's a career high and that's all I'm thinking about, rather than any negatives. I hope other people see it like that too.
"I've had a great season and that's what I hope people remember."
Police confirmed Higdon had been arrested at a nightclub on Ingram Street in Glasgow city centre.
It is understood the Liverpudlian was involved in an incident outside the Corinthian nightclub involving several security staff.
