I was hanging out with a couple friends outside on a summers night around 9pm.
Not dark yet, but it was close to becoming dark.
Anyways, we were in a park and this other group of kids comes to us.
One of them is clearly intoxicated, we just kept talking.
The kid who is intoxicated comes to me, because I was talking at that moment.
And starts slapping me with his palm of his hand, so I tell him to fuck off.
He doesn't comply with it, so I grab his wrist, my friends are starting to tell him to fuck off.
In a reply of me grabbing his wrist, he hits me with his fist in my face.
Not that it really hurt, yet I had my glasses on, which broke and hurt my nose quite a lot.
As someone who has played 4 years of fighting sports at that time and a background with soccer/football.
I had fierce (still have) kicks, which resulted in me kicking him on his ribs, just so he will have pain on them.
I didn't want to kick him on his kidney and cause (maybe) permanent damage to him.
After that, he was still standing, I finished the job by 3 to 5 punches and managed to hold him until police arrived.
Now here comes the part his buddies twisted the story around, about ME being the aggressor.
So that resulted in me getting arrested, the intoxicated kid got patched up by medics and also brought to the police station.
The police didn't trust his statement above mine, since he was intoxicated and I wasn't.
Kid never pressed charges against me, yet a strange feeling of getting cuffed for protecting myself.
Good thing he didn't try to charge you. And of course his friends are going to protect him, and because the cops have no idea what's going on when they get there, they'll take the majority of what the people are saying side. Sorry to hear you had to be cuffed.
