The short answer is no. In Florida, you can sue for malicious prosecution only if
(1) The pary to be sued commenced or continued an original criminal or civil judicial proceeding;
(2) The party to be sued was the legal cause of the original proceeding;
(3) The original proceeding was terminated in favor of the Plaintiff;
(4) There was an absence of probable cause in the original proceeding;
(5) The party to be sued acted with malice; and
(6) The Plaintiff suffered damages.

you could conceivably file a malicious prosecution case. Meeting the burden of proof in this kind of case is very
Furthermore, public agencies, such as the police department and the state's attorney's office have "sovereign immunity" from such suits. So, even if you could otherwise prove all of the elements of a malicious prosecution, you can't even sue governemental agencies for it.
