If the report is false, you can advise the police as filing a false police report is a criminal offence- namely, 'Public Mischief'. Alternatively or additionally, you could sue the person who filed the false report for malicious prosecution (i.e. causing an investigation to be commenced against you) and/or defamation (i.e. saying false and slanderous things about you).
