Can i sue a police officer for slander? and is this slander

Argyle, WI |

i live in a small town so gossip spreads like fire. on of the only two cops has been suspended for harassment already and he recently showed up at a good friends of mine house ar 8:30 am on duty to tell them that he personally busted myself and a buddy of mine dealing drugs and arrested us. that never happened and i dont even do drugs. i wasnt even in town and he specifically gave them my name. i recently started a handy man business and am sure it wil hurt my work since several ppl i dont know that well already asked me about it.what do i do.

Send a Cease and Desist letter directly to the officer and notify the police department of his actions. Without damages you're not going to prevail if you filed suit at this time.
