I am very sorry to hear about your difficult situation.
Can you please tell me when this altercation took place?
Was police called to the scene and police report made of the incident?
Thank you for that information.
What state was this in?
Well, at this point, it is possible that you can be charged with criminal assault and battery, which can be felony or misdemeanor.
First thing to do in this situation is not speak to anyone about the incident and not to volunteer any statements to the police.
