Is the arrest and subsequest search (after we were all detained in cuffs and no danger was present to officers) legal?

Can someone be arrested in San Diego, California for having the wrong license plate on their vehicle while the vehicle is parked in a private parking lot? While parked in a private hotel parking lot we put one of our other cars plates on our truck to avoid detection by the repo scanners and having our truck towed. My husband was arrested and my 18 year old daughter and myself were forcibly removed from the vehicle, handcuffed and placed in seperate police cars while the police ransacked my truck against my objections.
