Assault or Self defense?

I have been charged with assault and here is the situation: My friend and I were driving home and made a stop because his car was overheating. Someone he knew came up and started beating him up with a flash light, we have hospital records and all, and I pushed the guy off of my friend and hit him a couple times, enough for us to get away, no significant damage at all. My friend went to the hospital and suffered many facial injuries. Now I am being charged with assault! Is this possible?
