This is a situaton that raises self defense concerns . However without knowing more about the facts of your case I can tell you it is exremely important that you contact a crminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. You are facing potential felony charges and should take this matter seriously.
I've represented law enforcement officers with a similar defense. It can cut both ways. You'll need to hire an attorney and discuss the specifics with them. They will be able to review the State's evidence and better advise you from there.

Let me get this straight. You are a member of law enforcement and you have been arrested for a felony? You need to be face to face with the best criminal defense lawyer in your part of the state that you can get in to see. NOW. ASAP.
Any member of law enforcement who is arrested ought to remember what is on the standard law enforcement Miranda card, and exercise those rights. After that officer gets a good criminal defense lawyer, then he or she and the lawyer can discuss whether and if so when to give a statement or interview.

The advice you've been given by several people is to contact a good defense attorney. It's solid advice. You can tell us over and over again what your defense is, but you've just put a lot of information on a public forum that anyone, including police and prosecutors, can access. I suggest you contact a local attorney so that maybe they'll be allowed to present a packet including your defense to the grand jury to possibly avoid indictment. And stop talking about your case!
Hire an attorney immediately. Don't discuss with investigators without lawyer present. You could face criminal as well as civil charges. May even put the jail you work for at risk because you admit to using training received for inmates on a civilian.
This answer does not create an attorney client relationship. You should hire an attorney for legal representation.
