Can they press charges if I was defending myself in a fight?
I was out at with friends last night and was outside smoking when this drunk guy came out of the club and started acting wild and mostly annoying us. I told him to take off and then he got in my face and threatening to fight me. He took a swing at me but it was slow since he was drunk, I stopped his punch then cold clocked the dude. He fell to the ground and was out for a minute or two then someone put him in a cab. Anyway now I'm worried that he'll find it was me who hit him and press charges. Do I need to get a lawyer?
