How many times have you done this before?
Well, surely you have called the before to a domestic squabble before? You accept that above.
I need to know how many times roughly and when?
Ok. It is not the worst record then.
Did you admit the push in interview?
OK. There is no way around that then.
Take the caution. You have admitted an assault and they will prosecute on that basis if you do not.
A caution is the better deal overall.
Probably a no comment interview would have avoided this but there is no way of going back now.
Yes, they will prosecute. They will summons him. It is their current policy. That is why it is always dangerous to summons the police to domestic rows.
Oh yes, and it would have been avoided if the police had not been called.
But they were and he made an allegation and you admitted pushing him.
I'm afraid it is very dangerous to summons the police to rows now.
Yes, it would then as you would almost certainly be enhanced checked.
That does rather change things.
However, if you have admitted it then you have admitted it.
You could always refuse it in the hope they take no further action but it is a risk.
Yes, that does make things harder.
Unfortunately though it has been admitted so the options are reduced.
Well, the problem is that even on your version of events, you pushed him when there was no proper threat.
There is no defence in saying that he acted first. You were just not under attack at that time.
