Can you bring a suit? yes.
Will you win? Who knows. As I recall from your previous post an officer was demoted for his actions and a IA investigation remains ongoing. From what I recall of the facts, you don't have grounds to sue the County/Police sufficient to overcome their complete/qualified immunity. But you should, as was recommended earlier, sit down with civli rights attorney ASAP.
