Re: false arrest
Yes you can fight this. you need an attorney to reconstruct the situation and get all discovery from the District Attorney. More than that you need to discuss with your attorney. anything that I would advise you at this time would not be effective since I do not have anymore information.
Re: false arrest
You can absolutely fight these charges but this will take two very diffrent stages. FIRST you should fight the criminal case by hiring an attorney to defend you in this case. My office specializes in criminal defense and I would be more than happy to assist you on this case.
You can also hire an attorney to file a civil lawsuit against the police department for the false arrest. My office also handles these types of civil rights cases. Generally you may be able to win a substantial amount of money on such a case, depending on the facts of your case.
