A man, furious with myself and my fiance, confronted us as we exited our car. The first thing he did was get chest to chest with me and push while very loudly discussing our problem. The situation pretty much stayed in that phase, with him pushing me and me just standing there telling him to leave (although I was not very kind about it). It escalated when he tried to do the same thing to my fiance and I was forced to get between them and push him away. He threatened to maim or kill me. What can I legally do in that sort of situation? Can I restrain him until the police arrive? Deck him early to avoid a fight? Do I just have to stand there and take it? Does it make a difference that I am trying to protect someone else?
