Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in Texas

mistaken identity

My boyfriend was placed in handcuffs on his job from officers who had mistaken him for someone else. He was not taken away to jail, but he was extremely embarrassed and shaken up over this for quite a while as it was done in front of several co-workers. Can he do anything about this?
