What to do if I’m an active duty in the army and me and my wife were arrested for shoplifting?

It was all a big mistake and mixup. My son had a jacket on he walked out with and there was a watch in the baby’s stroller. We were oblivious and totally forgot he was wearing it when we paid as alot of the time he likes to put the stuff on and wear it in the store and we will usually have the cashier scan the tag but we both just were oblivious to it. And The watch I took off the shelf to see if my wife would let me buy it. She of course didn’t want me to but I wasn’t ready to give up on it. My 5 year old son. The one with the jacket wanted to try it on so I took it off the plastic holder it was on; they come off so you can try them out.
