Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Was it just a cut on the head please? Did it require stitches?
OK, then if anything it is likely to be ABH. It wont be common assault because of the injury.
But I dont think this is S.18 given the injury or lack thereof.
Given what you have said, you may also have an argument for self defence, you were protecting your friend.
You only pushed this person over to stop a fight.
So I think it would be ABH and even then you have a defence.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
It would likely be a Community Order or short prison sentence but if no trouble suspended.Does that clarify?
