    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Your question covers a tremendous amount of "factual area". I agree that your best bet is to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss the facts as you remember them. Keep in mind, however, that your facts may not coincide with what is reported in police documents so it is of the utmost importance that you secure counsel as soon as possible to begin a proper investigation for your defense.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Contact a criminal defense attorney of your choice as soon as possible. There may be a civil rights violation to work out, but as discussed, this is a very fact-sensitive situation. Obtain a copy of the police report to bring to the meeting with your lawyer.
