At least where I live the cops responded to a similar situation. The girl was very hurt and the guy was not. The girl threw the first punch, so the cops said that the guy was entitled to hit her since she hit him first, even though she was injured and he was not.
I am surprised to hear that the police didn't arrest the man. Perhaps the woman wouldn't press charges. Where I live, it doesn't matter who hit first. If there is violence, and bodily damage is done, the police will arrest the person who hit the other; they'll arrest both parties if it was mutual.
I guess as long as you don't kill her or permanently maim her, its fine.
Just be careful not to lose control and kill her.
wow. really? this surprises me to read this from you.
