Customer Question

My wife was being threaten and disrespected by a 17 yr old I step in and told the individual if he did not get out of my wife's face I would kick him in the azz. Once police arrive the individual assaulted the officer. The teen took out a warrant on me for communicating a threat. How do I argue that I was protecting my wife and the youth did stand down.
