Depends on your local police. Who will they side with? You or him? But if he started it and you responded, it’s totally within your rights to say something.
If nothing else, it shows you’re seriously NOT someone to be messed with.
personally i don’t know what i’d do there. i might just hope my fighting spoke for itself and that he’d never mess with me again, or i’d worry that the police would side with him and not me and stuff. But that’s ’cause I’m chicken when it comes to dealing with police.
either way you choose, it’s the right choice and you can stand tall behind either one.
[but if you’re having genuine fear and panic attacks over this, don’t hesitate to call. That’s what they’re there for. You shouldn’t have to suffer and feel unprotected there, especially if you feel in danger right now
