Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be glad to help you
Hi, how can I help you ?
You asked what type of charges could be brought against you
well i got in a fight and charges were brought up by the guy i fought. the report was sent to the district attorny...what kind of trouble can i get in
i also pressed charges against him
I do not know what was involved in the fight, but if it was a regular, run of the mill fight, he could bring assault and battery charges against you
If he had to go to the hospital for medical care, he could press charges you with aggravated assault. What charges did you press against him ?
no one was hurt, it was a run of the mill fight, i pushed him down let him up and then elbowed him once in theface. he was also pushing me but he got the worst of it
Who staerted the fight and what charges did you press against the other party ?
,the officer just told me he was pressing charges, he didnt say what the charges were
i then told the officer i too wanted to press charges, im assuming assault.
What charges were lodged against you ?
i wasnt told what the charges were
In what State did this happen ?
Did the other party go to the hospital ?
the guy didnt leave a tip for a waitress at the place we were at, the waitress toldn me this and she was pretty
Did he have to go to the hospital after the fight ?
upset so i went outside to him and told him that he was rude
no he did not
no one got too hurt, just some bruising and hurt egos
this happened in california by the way
If you pressed charges against him and he pressed charges against you, and without my knowing anything else, I would give you an educated guess that the Judge would dismiss all charges and enter an Order that each of you stay away from the other. I do not foresee anyone going to jail under the circumstances thawt you presented with both parties bringing charges against the other
Please be kind enough to press “ACCEPT”, otherwise I do not get paid anything at all
BONUS and POSITIVE FEEDBACK are appreciated
