Re: Self-Defense to an Assault and Battery Charge
This is/was the pivotal moment and is what bought you the no contest arrangement. Had you not aggravated the situation and simply walked off into the sunset you could've saved your keyboard a lot of stress lately. At one point in your initial post you ask; "...I don’t understand why this happened or what else I could have done to prevent the altercation." Calling out the doc caused your situation. Nothing more, nothing less. Had you not done that there would've been nothing else that transpired.

Your response was most likely aggravated by your consumption of copious amounts of controlled substances.
Soooooooo, the cause, and subsequent solution lies in the person that stares back at you in the mirror. Some members suggested you seek professional help for your mental/psychological/substance abuse difficulties. That would appear to be a very prudent course of action at this point.
You can educate dumb, but you can't fix stupid!
If guns kill people, then I blame my pen/pencil/keyboard for misspelled words!
