Obviously, the police not only think you made a false report, but they think they can meet their burden of proving it beyond a reasonable doubt. You need to get a good criminal defense attorney involved right away. First, he will be able to request discovery in your case (i.e., the police reports) to help you figure out why the police think you lied. Second, if there is proof you were less than truthful and you filed an insurance claim, the filing a false report charges may only be the beginning of your legal problems. You may also be on the hook for making a fraudulent claim, which can lead to additional charges and a civil suit against you to recover any payments made.
