Legal Question in Criminal Law in Oregon

I lied to police officers by telling them the man I've been with for over a year assaulted me when actually I was drunk and fell.He was sleeping ,we had gotten in a very bad verbal fight before he went in and layed down.How do I tell them I lied? My man has been in jail for 5 days and shouldn't be there at all.
