Q: Can I file a tort for minimal damages against the prosecutor and officer for maliciousness

Was pulled over out of district for a mantanice of lamp violation in nj by a out of town officer. He did jot contact the town police to write ticket in the book. Proceeded to say he is searching me cause he didn't like my attitude which I have recorded. Arrested me for alleged marijuana residue. Case is dismissed but missed many days of work and am now very defensive and have anxiety when approached by police due to the officer lacking knowledge of the required lamps needed to drive vehicle. After explaining to him that the third brake light is not required by statute definition, he asked me where I got my law degree, prison?
