Only a low level public order offence if anything at all.
It depends exactly what you did and what is alleged.
And how old they are really.
Proceeding on the basis that they exaggerate what you did this could amount to a S5 public order or S4 public order.
The defence of another is a defence to those charges.
It is difficult to tell really. I don't know whether or not they are going to allege that you made more serious threats. It is quite unlikely that they would charge anything like threats to kill or anything like that. It is difficult to prove that offence even if the accusers do say that it what you said.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, well the lesson is don't get involved in your wife's disputes. I am always amazed at how rarely men would end up in court if they were not either defending women or sorting out their disputes.
How would they identify you?
OK. So there is no ID issue.
It is a S5 or S4 public order then at the highest point.
I'm not sure they would charge you. It is not really in the public interest.
Also, in fairness, most people don't keep the police on speed dial. It is only a very small section of society that do that essentially because it is free and usually they are the ones who drain every other service. There have been home office studies that have suggested that something like 2% of the population make up 98% of the drain upon the emergency services. Those figures may not be quite right but it illustrates the point.
Oh no, but we are pre empting a situation where they may lie. Accusers do that sometimes.
If things were reported as you describe then you have not committed an offence.
I would imagine though that if they are going to make a report though they will not tell the whole truth.
Not if you can get the other people there to make statements.
It is the least they can do given that you were sorting out their disputes.
All the best.
