Can my employer take my entire paycheck for a damage that they have no proof is my fault?

Question Details: I was recently terminated from a company this past Friday 8/16/2019. Yesterday I received an email stating they have deducted my entire paycheck for damaged equipment. The damage was not my fault, and they have no way to prove it is my fault. I feel there are multiple things wrong with this because the damage was caused by another worker several months ago. Also, they deducted my entire paycheck. If I am not mistaken there are limits on how much they can deduct. Finally, they have not responded to any of my calls or emails regarding this issue.
