I live in Va., can I fight a drunk in public charge if I was on private land NOT visible by my community nor a public road?
I was the victim of ass. and batt., I called the sheriff's dept. to come to help me. I had just had my life threatened--on top of beaten. I already had a black eye and visible scruffs on my knees where I had been tackled to the ground repeatedly. Because I was distraught,& after the off. came out of the garage from speaking with the 'offender' he had already decided that he was taking us both to jail without even hearing my side. He ended up arresting only me for drunk in public and resisting arrest. I was on priv. prop. where no one in my community can see, nor could we see a public road, furthermore, I did not try to "flee" which constitutes resisting arrest. In what I have read, I was not legally "in public" so the arrest seems to be unlawful, therefore, COULD resist, though I did not.
