Best Answer

No, dismissal of criminal charges is not an indication that the person was innocent of the crime, only that there was not enough evidence to pursue prosecution.


Exactly... You would need to prove that the arrest was unjustified to qualify for this complaint. Such as an officer arresting you with absolutely no evidence and nothing to go on. Basically just maliciously arresting you. This would be a violation of your personal rights under the constitution. Chances are that the case wouldn't go all the way to trial in this circumstance anyways.
