This was an illegal arrest, they had no right to enter your home without a warrant.

And they did not have any right to demand ID in my opinion either.

You can find a criminal defense attorney listed by location through
http://lawyers.findlaw.com/lawyer/practicestate/Criminal-Law/California

You should also consult a civil rights attorney about suing the police who did this, see

I hope this information is helpful.
