Officer scratched out misdemeanors gave felonies?

First off, let me say I am transgender woman in a college town. I have had the run in with a few transphobic police officers I fear. I was with a couple of gentlemen I met one night. Long story short. The officer found weed on one of the guys. Both of the guys are related. The officer that was there knows me due to seeing me out and is very transphobic. Anyways, on the violations complaint he scratched out misdemeanors and gave me felonies instead. Which lead to a 10,000 dollar bail. First time offense. I Have never been in trouble. I am youth leader for a center I have been apart of for over 6 years. I'm 23, respected in my community. I do have an attorney. Can the officer write out misdemeanors than give me felonies instead ?

    You say you have an attorney - ask him.
