My son got a call from a local police lieutenant wanting him

My son got a call from a local police lieutenant wanting him to come in and make a statement regarding some pushing a shoving between he and his wife. We're afraid if he makes a statement, the policy may charge him for domestic abuse. Is he better off telling the police that he is not going to make a statement and wants a lawyer/public defender?

We are going thru divorce. My ex and me cant agree on

We are going thru divorce. My ex and me cant agree on custody battle. Our son has autism.He called police to check on me, threatened to call Child Protective Services and reported me to the government agency IHSS where I receive social security payments for my son. These payments are my only income :(I have email from my ex showing that he requested that we settle for insignificant amount, otherwise he is going to call IHSS and create issues. I believe it is blackmailing.Ex said that our son doesn't have autism and doesn't need therapy and services, he also claimed that I lied on time sheets that I fill out every week because our son was spending a few days per week at daycare and with him. He also said that now we have 50% custody and child spends 1 week with me and 1 week with his dad so I should get paid for less hours.I believe I didn't violate anything because I was still watching our son 50 hours per week but I feel very uncomfortable. I never had any trouble with the law before. Now they are going to conduct investigation and he said District Attorney will be involved :(What could be possible outcome of this situation?What is the penalty for violations like this?I have pictures of my ex masturbating next to our child"s bed and video showing he left our child all by himself late at night and went to the gym. Would it be too suspicious if I show it to police? I believe these are serious criminal violations.Ex also had domestic violence, drug abuse and has mental issues- anxiety and depression for which he is taking daily medication. Will investigators going to take this into consideration?
