I need to know what laws is there for mutual combat an how to get another to agree with it an no charges would be filed. Is it lawful if both persons agreed to mutual combat?
Mutual combat essentially means that all parties were in a fight in which each participated willingly. It basically means both parties consented to the assault by getting into a mutual affray. I can't tell you how to get someone to agree to it because I cannot give legal advice, only information. If the fight truly was mutual, that usually comes out in the investigation without one side having to convince the other that it was mutual. The police or prosecutor may at that point decide not to file charges or to drop charges if they have been filed if they believe that a mutual fight occurred.
