brother in law chipped my vehicle windshield in 8 places after having an outburst of anger in front of his mom and daughter. I filed felony warrant charges for throwing a missile at an occupied vehicle with malicious intent. More than 5 years ago he had an attempted murder of a police officer against him which was later dropped to a misdemeanor b/c the police used excessive force against him. I want to know if I can bring up the past violence even though charges were dropped. He has had no other violent behavior charges in all of these years. There are no prior acts against myself by him.
