Customer Question

Hi, I have a question. I was in an accident and I know (and have proof) that I was hit and subsequently hit the person in front of me. There is a lady who came forward and claims to have seen the accident take place and says no one hit me. However, there are scratches and small dent on my rear bumper that weren't there before.
Is there a chance I will be charged with filing a false police report, even though I know I was hit?
