Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am JudgeLaw and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide you excellent service.
I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you, but I believe I have information which you will find helpful.
There is nothing to do until you hear from the police, if at all. The other parties may change their minds or the police may elect to not pursue the matter if their is not probable cause
to arrest you.
In all likelihood, they would call you to come to the station to be questioned and arrest you then.
If you get the call to come for questioning, you should decline. You do not know what the police know and you could inadvertently make their case for them by making statements.
You do not need to retain an attorney unless the police tell you that you will be arrested if you do not come to the station.
