i dont want to come over as unsympathetic, but why would going to the police station lead to an argument there ? as i say, i know it sounds like i'm being a ****, but maybe you just need to come at the problem with a different attitude. - You wont get an inch from the coppers i suspect, but with a clear head and a smile, you'd likely have been in a better position to fight this in court (with free representation) than if you give up, get upset about it, sign over your goods as something they wern't (weapons) and now find that next time the police stop you with a knife (and they will, knowing how police quotas work) you'll goto a cell. keep your chin up mate. just learn from your mistakes i guess. kicking off in a police station, or getting 100 mates to goto the womans land and cause a problem is why you get labeled by police as a trouble maker. You've got the label now and there's no shaking it i suspect, but you don't have to give them the satisfaction of letting them push you around. Id imagine a police officer would find it hard to be an asshole if you refuse to get annoyed with them.
