Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
These law enforcement officers were really pushing it - if you never gave permission for them to come in and then search your home - it is an illegal search. if they want to say that the "911" call was probable cause then they are going to need to produce the document/records from 911 showing that call did indeed come from your home - this can be done via a "discovery" process
So did they charge you, were you arrested, are you getting a citation? If you have a court hearing, I would suggest that you consult with a local attorney to have this "evidence" thrown out - you can contact the Indiana Bar Association for a referral and possibly someone who believes very strongly in the US Constitution and due process and might consider handling this matter pro bono.
