basically my friend told me that I will get charged for affray as I touched the person in question (He said the police office told him this) He was one of the four arrested, so I am just very scared. The police had put us in for suspicion of assault and affray. The person that punched the male owned up to the police in police station that he did punch the person. the rest 3 of us were just trying to calm the situation. Even after the guy pushed me I did not do anything to him, or push him back.
We are required to come back to police station on 1st june so just want to know what would happen to me?
I told them that it was just very gentle tap on the guys shoulder to calm him down and that he was drunk, and the above. Also they asked if I had anything to drink I told them about 2 drinks.
Yes, because there is a CCTV there and it was on windsor high street. The guy in question got a little cut on his lip, minor injury. Also the person that punched him said it in the police station that it was him who punched him and had nothing to do with us.
The other 2 who didn't punch him are my cousins and they roughly said the same story as mine, as that was the truth.
Am I in serious trouble?
Thanks for the answer, that would apply even if my friend says that all the fault was his and we had nothing to do with it? His story was that he acted in self defense because he was scared of the person, but ultimately he punched him and not us. Because it was him arguing and we were just trying to cal, the situation.
The problem I have here is would I get a criminal record for this even though its my first time to ever be involved with the police?
My main concern would be to be able to travel to other countries as the first question they ask is whether or not have I had any criminal convictions, and that would really jeopardise my career.
If they do give me anything what would it be? Jail, caution, tag?
If they do, can I appeal for it if I am ready to pay for a good solicitor to fight my case as I really didn't do anything, and if that is worth it in my case.
Sorry to ask so many questions, I am just really scared and want to know possible outcome of this.
