Wanna ask those in the know, or perhaps in spf..
If say a drunk guy for no apparent reason starts swinging at me, and I return a few punches in return, resulting both bruised and police came..
Is it true I cannot charge him with assault and police will treat it as a brawl and both of us is equally guilty?
If I actually hurt him then I likely be charged with assault instead?
And that I should have instead Only try to push him away and try to run, in which case I still have the right to charge him with assault?
Just wana know. thx
