I was accused of pointing a gun at someone and then shooting it up in the air. The police showed up with their guns drawn and ordered everyone out of the house. The police found nothing at all!
Yes, you can file a police report against the person who falsely claimed you committed crimes. However, the issue will be whether that agency will perform a thorough and proper investigation and submit it to the State Attorneys' Office. Additionally, if you were arrested by this, you can bring a false arrest/false imprisonment and malicious prosecution case against that person, and you may have a defamation case for being falsely accused of a crime.
