Did he contact the police? If he did and the police want to speak to you, you should NOT speak to them without an attorney. Tell them you will not speak to them. Then contact a criminal defense attorney.

Does it mean I would in trouble?
Criminal Lawyer: D. WINOGO ESQ., Lawyer replied 6 years ago
Depends. Technically speaking, he could file criminal assault and battery charges against you for for hitting him, but if his injury is really nothing, then the police likely will not prosecute.

So at this point, if there has been no police involvement and no lawsuits, then you do not need to do anything or worry about anything.

The person was hit by the moving spoon.I mean I wasn't intentional to hit him.that makes any different?
Criminal Lawyer: D. WINOGO ESQ., Lawyer replied 6 years ago
If you threw or waved the spoon around while engaged in the confrontation, then the intent to hit him can still be implied.

If there is little to no severe/significant injury, then it is unlikely that there will be any prosecution against you.
