If you were a cop, and you had someone in custody due to be released, but a colleague asks you to hold him for a while longer on false charge because they know he was guilty but needed more time, would you make up the charges to help a colleague?

No.

But depending on the situation, I might insist that all release documentation be done "to the letter".  It's so common there are things like spelling mistakes - that have to be corrected before the paperwork was "complete".

No as this becomes a conflict of Interest and Conduct unbecoming but the Colleague better have charges ready to go. Now any person can be held for 48 hours without any charges being filed
