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.
