A teenage boy was vandalizing property in the campground where I am a camp host. To keep him from getting away I grabbed his bicycle and took it from him(carefully without hurting him) and held it while my girlfriend called the Sheriff. While I had the bike the boy punched me twice and threw a rock hitting me in the head. A friend of the boy went and got the boys father who arrived before the sheriff's and choked me to unconsciousness. The sheriff's finally arrived, called an ambulance which took me to the hospital. The bill is about $12000. Do I have legal recourse against this attack?
