Obstruction of Justice

Trying to help the owners of a restaurant, in which I am not employed, I took a beverage order from some customers. One guy wanted a beer, so I checked his drivers license to make sure he was legal. He asked, ''Do you have a serving permit?'' I said, ''Yes.'' Assuming he meant the permit on the wall. He said, ''I need to see it.'' ''Are you serious?'' I replied. ''Yeah!'' he replied as he flashed a necklace at me that look as if it had a badge on it. I said, ''One moment. Let me get it.'' He said, ''OK''. So I went and told the owner that some guy wanted to see the liquor license. She said that she would take care of it. Not knowing I had committed a crime, I left to go get my medication that I need to function. Half way to my house I get a phone call telling me that I need to get back to the restaurant because the police need to talk to me. I said, ''OK, I am on my way.'' and immediately rushed back to the restaurant. I had to search around to find the police and told them I came as fast as I could. The guy yelled at me, pushed me up against a car, and handcuffed me. I was told that I was under arrest for obstruction of justice. I didn't even know I had broken a law. Am I guilty of Obstruction of Justice?
