    I know, but like I said, I wonder what elevated this case. A bruised cheek from a slap isn't all that much of an injury; not enough to rate a felony charge, IMO. My guess is her account has some extra (probably unverifiable) details which led the officers to go felony.

    That's also why I recommended he document every detail he possibly could. You never know when a seemingly minor detail will blow a BS story out of the water, but you only get one chance at taking those photos, or remembering dates/times, etc.

    Getting even never works, and trying will likely end up making everything worse.

    I know he's talked with his lawyer, but do you know any cops? He might listen to someone that's seen how this plays out hundreds of times in the real world. My advice to motivate him to keep his shit together is to focus on what he needs to do to take care of his kid. If he's in jail, working his ass off to pay legal bills, or looking for work because he lost his job while in jail, he can't do right by his kid. Focus on the kid, and let the bitch stew in her own drama.

    That's exactly how I felt.
    It kicked out on me twice but they were soft landings.
    Adrenaline levels are still quite high.

    All is well. Thx man.
