Inventory searches are semi-protected under the law. It really depends on the facts and what probable cause the police had and if anything was in plain view. I think you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

Whether the officer is using unnecessary force is a question for the jury. Regardless, the officer does not have to allow you to speak to the chief. You may have to do that when you are not detained.
