Can you be arrested for slapping someone?
NEW YORK: What kind of charges am I looking at? This girl said she's going to have me arrested. I slapped her at a bar last weekend because she called me a whore and I am not! She hit me back. Then I left. I probably shouldn't have done that but now I'm scared I'm going to jail. What is going to happen to me? Should I file an assault charge first since she also hit me. I have witnesses.
