Just tell the police it's not true. They can't arrest you without a warrant, and no prosecutor is likely to file this. So, don't worry.

Depends on the nature of your injury. It's only been less than a year, and if they are arguing you had a preexisting condition--as they do in nearly every case short of amputation--yes, that can take that long.I'm assuming you have an attorney. If not you need to get one.

Not if in the judgement of the doctor it was medically appropriate. DNR doesn't mean don't do squat. It means if there is a situation where recussitation merely prolongs brain dead life (or other qualification) don't resucitate)

It maybe advisable to ask to meet with a police officer to make a report just to document everything that has been happening. Next, you may want to speak to an attorney about getting a civil injunction against him, and maybe even a protective order.
