My wife showed up with family, moving van, and proceeded to come into our home, whisking past me when I went outside to find out the matter…family began taking things and I couldn’t stop them. Wife feigned that I pushed her down when nobody was around and started screaming. Another step daughter was taking items out of the house, and I tried to stop her, but she resisted my attempts…Police arrested me, and they both pressed assault charges against me, for putting my arms around my step daughter and ask her not to be taking things out of the house. Police report from officer says he will write that she forced the confrontation by having her and her family invade the house. Nothing was peaceful about her invasion…should I be worried?

Yes, you are possibly going to be charged with domestic assault, get a lawyer ASAP and have them help you during the investigation phase.
