OK; thank you for that; I am sorry to hear that you are your boyfriend had a dispute.
Normally once a police report is filed and the individual is arrested, the prosecutor will look to see if there is sufficient evidence to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the crime occurred.
It is very difficult for the prosecutor to make a case when the primary witness is unclear as to events, so if the primary witness indicates that they are not clear on the events but they are more certain that they self injured, the prosecutor may choose to drop the case.
The problem is that often times victims will change their story out of fear, so it depends on what the prosecutor makes of the issue and if s/he feels that there truy was domestic violence and if so whether they have the case to prove it.
Whenever the primary witness/victim refutes their original statement it creates doubt and that makes it more difficult for the prosecution to prove their case, so they may drop it, rather than spending money on the trial when there is an unwilling participant.
However, it may be worthwhile to attend anger management or couples therapy since it was mentioned that there is a lot of fighting, as that can help with the underlying issues.
And of course if one was in fact a victim of domestic violence, there are safeguards in place such as protective orders to protect the victim.
