The most common domestic assault cases involve “mutual combat." In other words, both sides have put their hands on each other. Often times a person is charged with domestic assault even though they were merely defending themselves after being attacked first. Another common scenario is when the police are called to merely defuse an argument and are shocked to discover that the police have a policy of making an arrest when responding to a domestic call.
