My brother and his wife attacked me and my wife. My brother is a two time felon with a deadly weapon.
My step brother called my brother and stated where me and my wife were. They arrived and my brother got off his car and hit me with a mini dodger bat and then pushed me. As I was trying to walk away. He stated to his wife to attack my wife so him and his wife did. My brother punched my wife in the face and then grabbed my arm as I tried to stop them and threw me to the floor (Collar bone was separated and now I am in a sling and limited to light duty at work). Punched me in the face and then tried to attack my wife again. I am pressing full charges.
Police stated this is a 245, and his wife would be charged with a 240
Now I am receiving life threatening phone calls, stating that I should not go home or work.
If you are being threatened, you report that to the police as well.
SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY--20 years experience
Since you have already filed a police report, you should let them know any new information, such as the threats.
Keep the police current on all new threats. You are not pressing charges by the way; only the DA can do that. The most you can do is call the police, which you have done.
If they gave you a criminal protective order, this would be a violation of that order, and a new crime. You should seek a restraining order, and that information will be placed in a data base so when you call the police, the violation of the protective order will be a new crime he will be arrested again on new charges. Get one against the Wife also, and that will also allow you to violate her if she calls or comes within 100 yards of you.
