The police wouldn't have showed up unless someone reported something. If that person testifies to what they said or heard, then that may be sufficient to make a case for DV.
However, if you, as the alleged victim did not feel abused, and there was no physical evidence of any abuse, then I don't see how the case could be prosecuted.
Which would mean that the case will be dropped, unless your boyfriend confessed or decides to plead guilty.

It still comes down to the same thing: does the prosecutor have sufficient evidence to convict your boyfriend without your testimony?
Unfortunately, if you said you "felt scared and threatened," that would probably be sufficient to make a prima facie case of domestic abuse. So, even if you were to refuse to testify, the 911 tape could potentially be used as evidence of the boyfriend's actions at the time -- especially if you actually sounded scared on the tape.
Your boyfriend needs a lawyer to help deal with this. He's not likely to avoid the charges, regardless of what you do.
