What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Alabama
Recently I got in a verbal fight with my husband while my friends (husband and wife) were over. My husband did knock over a cup of tea and throw something extremely small and not threating at me. I did not feel in danger at all. My friend told him to get the h e l l out of the house and he told her to leave. I guess her husband didn't like that because he then grabbed my husband. I got between them to break up the fight but they wouldn't stop. I told my friend who was in the other room to call the police and she told them it was a domestic violence situation. When the police got there I had a visable mark on my arm but I told them I got it from being between them and that my husband didn't hurt me. They arrested him and now when I picked up the police report it says that I told them he grabbed me and he called me a bad word but he didn't. I tried to tell the officer at the station I didn't say that he said it is my word against theirs. I already had to pay $100 to get him out and now an attorney is going to be at least $750 when all he did was defend himself from an attack from another man and get in a verbal fight with me. What can I do? Anyway to get around going to court and paying an attorney?
