Can I be sued because the defendant I obtained a restraining order on "thinks" I lied and filed false police reports? I didn't!

Anyone can sue for anything...so yes she can sue you. It does not mean she will win. I suggest that you consult with an attorney because even though what you have alleged may be the truth you should be prepared for what she may do and how to handle it.
Anyone can sure for anything. That does not mean they have any merit to the case. If she is currently on probation for the charges, then the policy had an opportunity to evaluate the charges as did the fact finder. It sounds like you should not have dropped the RO.
