I took my husbands cell phone. he called 911 to have someone

I took my husbands cell phone. he called 911 to have someone come out and get it back. during our confrontation we both got cuts on our arms. The police came out and I got arrested. My husband is not pressing charges and he also told the detective that he never felt threatened. He just wanted his phone back. I might also add that he did break my door down to get in my room to try and get his phone. I have been charges with a felony. My husband wants to try and get the 911 call dismissed since he did not call due to a threatening situation. The injuries on both of us were due to him taking my purse and me trying to get it back. we were not attacking each other. My court date is Dec 29th, Im 68 years old, I am terrified of going to jail or prison. Is this possible?
