Why Was I Arrested If I Was Being Assaulted and Defended Myself?

Many times after the officer interviews all parties involved and makes his determination as to what happens, a person who was only defending himself can end up in jail charged with an assault.

I have seen this in many cases of domestic violence in Dallas and the surrounding areas. One spouse is being hit and pushed and the other simply strikes back in self defense, and the police officer makes a bad call and arrests the wrong person.

Self defense is a great defense to use in trial in an assault of family violence assault in the Dallas area. You need to take pictures and document your injuries very quickly so the evidence can be preserved for trial.
