Legal Question

Asked on: 5/09/08, 4:32 pm

newspaper printed VERY untrue story

about a month ago a warrant was put out for my arrest for assault. a week ago the police showed up at my house to serve the warrant. i walked outside, they asked my name and they said i had a warrant out. i was very cooperative and put my hands behind my back and was cuffed. today i was reading the local newspaper and saw an article about me. the article claims that the police were responding to a suicide call, and that i came running at them with a knife, and was told to stop and tasered and arrested and charged with assault with intent to inflict serious injury. someone needs to be sued for this, as the entire town gets this paper, and this has seriously ruined my reputation. i would like to know how i should go about this, and any opinion on what i should do or not do. thanks.
