In this case it would NOT be self defense since you made no effort to retreat before striking back.

However, you stand an excellent chance of sucessfully arguing that she knowingly provoked you. Unlawful provokation (especially physical provocation) is an excuse in most jurisdictions.

Bear in mind that since provocation is, legally, an "exscuse" and not a "justification", the burden of proof is on you to prove that your were provoked. This may not bee too difficult since you seem to have many witnesses who will corroborate your story.

I guess it's up to the police to decide. If you hadn't hit her back, it would have been completely her fault. Since this was apparently a fight over nothing, you had nothing to lose.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Sounds like self-defense.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

No, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I'm NOT BY ANY MEANS saying that anyone he pushes you should instantly be decked in the face. Today's society is so screwed up, I mean even my dad said if they didn't have all these laws and make such a big deal even for a simple fight in school he would probably tell me to deck a kid who wouldn't get off my back, and you know what, that kid would probably deserve it. Yes there are better ways to handle it but I don't think "talking it out" or "saying no" helps so much in this situation so even though no one on here will agree with me, agree with a kid such as myself who went through all this **** in middle school. Anyone who gives you a hard time, teach them a lesson.

If you couldn't walk away from it, you have the right to defend yourself. No such thing as a fair fight.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

No L
yea an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Shorten that down to, "Is it wrong to punch someone in the face?", which I'd go with yes. I imagine the whole thing could have been resolved without punching her.
Now, I've not heard the whole story but it sounds like you weren't completely out of line if she started it. Depends how far it went really, lots of factors of what was said and who was pushing who and what you thought she was going to do. Doesn't sound like you'll get in a lot of trouble if you just hit her once.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

In the eyes of the law, a push is the first blow. You are entitled to fight back and are very legally defensible in your actions. However there is a practical side to this too. The person with the visible wounds is generally not the person who gets locked up. Without witnesses a push might be problematic.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Pushing is an unlawful provocation. Thus, punching someone who is pushing is valid because it is self-defense.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You should have kicked her between the legs and screamed, "I DON'T KNOW YOU, THAT'S MY PURSE"!!
