The thing that you are not understanding is that the incident happened at her home. She also has a rental unit that is 5 miles away that my friend lives at. She is trying to keep me from going to see my friend at that address because she owns the building... I dont think that is right... I thiought a restraining order is when someone is harrassing you threatening you and if they had hurt you or assaulted you... I did none of those things...I was her friend and we got in an argument and she called me some names and I called her a few after she called me some and then she pushed me and I went outside and called the cops because she had argued with her grandson a week earlier and pushed him around too. I just thought that this was getting to be a pattern for her and wanted her to stop. So the question I have been asking all along is does she really have the right for a restraining order...if so maybe I should get one on her...since the police officer did say that she admitted pushing me and she did say that I did not push her.
