what to do if a person is making a false report

This answer was rated:

If an individual comes to my house and started a verbal argument and opened her car door on my property and i shut from above the window with the palms of my hands and she is claming i scratched her car all up in a police report.
Unfortunately there isn't a lot you can do. The police are likely to just ignore everything if there are two reports that directly conflict, there are no injuries, and no witnesses.

Filing a false report is against the law, but most DAs won't take this case because they can't prove a crime was committed "beyond a reasonable doubt".

Yes both sides have conflicting stories.there was no injuries but she did have a witnesses and so do i.so where do you go from here if her witnesses is going to side with her.
It depends on what the police do next. I don't think they are likely to do anything in this case and if so there is really nowhere to go.
