What is the name of your state? MD
I was punched by a stranger on the way out of a club. both me and the other guy were escorted out of the place by the bouncers. when i went outside, i saw the guy and wanted to know why he hit me. obviously, i was mad, but i am not stupid and going to hit someone and get charged for assault. i just wanted to know why the guy hit me. i went up to the guy and asked, "are you the guy who hit me?" then, the guy punched me again. i was arrested by the police for "disturbance of the public peace." they did not get the other guy. i think he may have ran off. i was a victim in this case and was arrested. i did not know who the other guy was, so i could not press assault charges against him. how should i fight this misdemeanor charge? i went to the club alone (via taxi) and i do not know anyone i could call as a witness in my defense. i am currently on a pbj for a first time DUI offense. will this charge affect the pbj?
