We were falsely accused of a damage claim at a motel far from our home. What are our options?

Briefly stated: First off, the manager claimed that our dog had stayed in our room, which he did not, and we were asked to check out. Upon leaving, we were told our cleaning deposit would not be refunded because of our dog. My husband slammed the door when leaving the office. Now we get a call from the police asking for our version of events. The motel manager claims that my husband deliberately opened the deadbolt before slamming the door, which he did not. She claims there is $1,000 worth of damages, which makes it a felony in the state.Extradition may be imposed. She is lying about the dog, and lying about the deadbolt. What are our options? I am thinking we need to write a letter stating our complete version of the events, get it notarized, and send it registered mail to the police. Any suggestions will be appreciated. The motel is in a city more than 500 miles from our home. Thanks, hive mind.
