Car almost hit me as it did not stop at intersect in parking lot, while I was riding bike along main path. A few seconds later I pulled a small piece of rock from bag and threw it, damaged car side. Driver followed me in car and pulled me back while I was riding, hurting my groin area. Driver complained that I damaged his car. I checked and see a small dent size of golf ball. He called police, I agreed to wait 10mins. 10mins over, I picked up bike to leave but driver grabbed my bike handle and would not let go. I pleaded many times and after 2 mins I asked kindly one last time before pulling out my dog pepper spray and spray at driver near eyes. He finally let go of bike and I sped away. A week later I was charged with mischief and assault by police. If you can provide any advice, that would help. Thank you.
