Neither one of us ever said we were physically fighting. I called the police said we were arguing verbally. It is in municple city court not county.

    Answered . You may be able to get it dismissed but it is more likely if you have lawyers representing you. You both have a right to take the 5th, and it is likely without the testimony of each of you, neither case will proceed forward.
