that guy filed a charge of assault against me because i used it: I had a "streetfight" on the ground yesterday... - No BS MMA and Martial Arts
The "assault": injuring him in the face(bruise above his nose from falling to the ground) and choking him (for 2 seconds maximum)
****, ****, **** if i get anything into my criminal record from that I won't be able to continue my physiotherapy school because it's an education leading to a state examination in which i can't participate with anything in my criminal record...

Get a good lawyer, explain that you saw him assaulting a woman, and say it looked like he was losing control and going to seriously hurt her. Hopefully that will get the judge to be more sympathetic.

Yeah, i also wrote that in what i prepared for my report, i didn't send the cops anything yet. I will also be invited as a witness in a charge of assault that woman he beat filed, so i think the chances aren't that bad.

I think your chances are fucking great, now that the woman filed charges.
If anything, the dipshit really fucked himself. If he just fled, he would have been humiliated. Now that he made it a legal matter, he will be exposing himself as a woman beater in front of a judge. I hardly think the judge will look at this and say "oh, you poor woman beating bastard... how dare he hit you!"
Seriously, sometimes I'm surprised at just how retarded some people are (mind you this is coming from someone with heavy alcohol and poor decision making skills running in the family.)

I'm not sure of the laws regarding self-defense where you live. However, in Pennsylvania you are allowed to intervene and defend a third party if you believe the person is at immediate risk of being injured and that your intervention can be justified. So in Pennsylvania you'd be perfectly off the hook, because you were defending a woman who was being abused by a man.

I'd say with the victim pressing charges against the offender (other guy,) he's already plenty off the hook. Then again, I'm not one of them fancy law folk...

Get a lawyer. Even if you were in the right, you want somebody who will frame your story in a way that addresses the law.

Lawyers are notorious for finding loopholes and taking things out of context, so even though the guy the OP stopped from beating the woman is in the wrong it is still something that should be taken seriously.

Hm, you might be able to use that post to help you out. If you don't mind explaining the website and all that other crap including why you posted it. Considering some people might see it as "god damn kids these days starting trouble and bragging on that interwebz with their pornography!"
Look on the bright side, at least you're not charged with murder via chain punches.

Get a lawyer ASAP. Just make sure you don't say **** till you have too, like on the stand testifying. Make sure you refer to what to did as a vascular restraint to subdue him. Not "Hell yeah I choked his ass out?! He was being a prick!".
This is of course if the DA decides to go ahead and prosecute you. But if you make a good enough case with evidence, witness testimony and well put together lingo like the above said he wont go for it because he wont prosecute a case he thinks he might not win. DAs want high win rates, that's how they get promoted.
Seriously, good luck to you.
