Can you get assault charges dropped if someone lied?

People think the police can not lie, they do, they can, they are free citizens, if someone
lies it is common and ignored in modern times, unless to a direct and urgent demand:
Is that the man who lost his pants, yes/no. Lies can be a felony to a P.D. etc. Charges
can be dropped for thousands of reasons: The only witness changed his story, he was
actually home watching Opra. That witness was then destroyed and the case was dropped because of no credibility and the motive to make a couch potato lie was probable.
The prosecutor may still want a trial in a serious or repetitive case.
