Hello, i am an 18 year old female. I had a 17 year old girl txt me saying rude things and aggrivating me. I said to her "If you said this to my face, i would knock you out". The girl is now trying to charge me for "uttering threats". I got arrested and made a statement to the police. I was wondering if i can really get charged for this. First of all, she was saying rude and hurtful things to me. Second of all, i did not really threaten her. She had nothing to be threatened of unless she "said it to my face". Advice please?
