What will happen regarding a trespass charge?

I am a juvenile and I was ding dong ditching through a neighborhood’ I also hopped over a fence and jumped on a trampoline but caused no damage. I then later was detained by an officer who read me my Miranda rights as well as told me I was being under arrest even after I denied what I did. A witness drove by and verified it was me who had trespassed but did not press charges. The officers then took down my information, they called my parents, and detained me until my parents came and picked me up. Was I actually arrested? What charges will I have to face? Is it against the law to lie to an officer? I have yet to receive any paperwork, how long will it take?

Based upon what you have written abou you were actually arrested by law enforcement BUT no criminal charges against you have seemingly been filed to date. I suggest that you contact a reputable criminal defense attorney in your locality to see about nipping the problem that you have written about in the bud.
