There are many issues that need further investigation. Whether or not the police had a legal right to confront you in the first place is the starting point. Under the rule of law established by the Supreme Court in the landmark case of Terry v. Ohio, a police officer must have, as a minimum, "reasonable suspicion" that a crime is or may be taking place before the officer can order submission to the officer's authority. This is a complicated area of Fourth Amendment law and there are many cases and court rulings that provide distinction deciding whether or not the time and location, the specific acts of the suspected persons, and other factors justify the police-citizen encounter.
