Question posted in the General Law category relating to Free State

I was arrested earlier this year for driving people who we're on a plan of robbing a store

This incident happened 14 Feb 2021 and the arrest was made on the following year,which we we're arrested and spend two weeks in the cell

During my arrest the police assaulted and insulted me and the told me not to take a selfie with my phone because I wanted to have evidence that they assaulted me.

They showed us a footage of that incident but I wasn't in the picture nor the car

Can I use this evidence to sue them?
