Hi this is the first time police have been involved?
have you admitted what you did to the police?
Will she give evidence?
That is a shame. This should have been no comment interview. He would have walked away with nothing. I have not seen your interview obviously and so I can't say whether or not you have a self defence arguments here. On the face of its you have admitted an offence because grabbing her around the neck probably was excessive.
If your admissions amount to an offence then probably should be considering a guilty plea.
Can I clarify anything for you?
it depends really. I must sound very surprised that they didn't just cautioned you at the police station.
On the first offence though it would only be a low-level community order.
No problem and all the best.
