ASSAULT NOT CHARGED – State v. Mr. L. (DMC No. 5887) (Phoenix Police Department DR2004-42434207): Mr. L. was at a movie theater with his girlfriend and kids, when his girlfriend asked some people if they can move down so they could sit. Another person in the row behind them stated “shut up bitch” and Mr. L. got into an argument with the alleged victim. Words were exchanged, and the other gentleman rapidly approached Mr. L. Mr. L. grabbed him by the shirt collar, and then an off duty Sheriff’s Deputy intervened. Although a report was taken against Mr. L., we were able to convince the Prosecutor to not file charges as he merely used proper force while defending himself.
