    Things went wrong when you refused to show your ID. If you
    didn't have anything to hide, you should have handed over your
    ID. They would have confirmed that there are no warrants for
    you, etc., told you to be careful with your knives and let you
    go. Because you chose to exercise your "right" to refuse your
    identification, you gave the impression that there is
    something to be suspicious of. So I'd suggest attending your
    court date and complying with an officer's wish in the future.
    You have no case.
