He needs to file a police report of the incident. Once you are arraigned and plead not guilty, the state (DA) is required by law, to give you a copy of the police report. You can read it and see what the cop is saying. If you have witnesses or pictures or video showing that he is wrong, you should bring those with you to court on the trial date, and show the DA. You should also immediately hire an attorney as assault on a police officer is usually a jail and serious offense. If you can't afford an attorney, a free one will be appointed if you are indigent and are facing jail.
