Young college student is assaulted by a big drunken frat boy who repeatedly slams him into parked cars. Student draws a fixed blade knife and warns frat boy to back off; frat boy doesn't listen and gets stabbed. Police arrest the student who defended himself and accuse him of first degree assault with a deadly weapon. Student's family hires legal representation to fight the case, and WINS the jury trial - justified self defense, thanks in part to the testimony of several unbiased witnesses who saw the fight. Drunken frat boy is now threatening a civil lawsuit and still claims it wasn't his fault despite witness testimony. Moral of the story: doesn't always assume the cops will be on your side if you have to use a weapon to defend your life. Hire a good lawyer, and pray to God that you can track down witnesses who will tell the truth about how you protected yourself.
