Can I sue a person for pushing, grabbing, vehicular damage, and emotional distress?

Starkville, MS |

A guy who i've been dating for a year was heavily intoxicated at a public place at night . When I tried to help him and stop the embarrassment, he pushed me down. Two altercations occurred at my apartment ( with him walking away intoxicated alongside a highway and me going after him in my car so he wouldn't get hit) and at his apartment complex( after driving him home ). It escalated after I found text messages from another woman whom he was also dating as well. I was called vulgar names, pushed, threatened to be elbowed, and my jewelry was destroyed. I found a long faint scratch on my arm the next day. He also dented/scratched the rear side of my car from reckless driving or driving while intoxicated. He had a hang over and doesn't remember anything. Is there anything I can do?
