Legal Question

Asked on: 11/19/12, 2:01 pm

Physical fight between me and a friend. She threw first punch, then broke my TV and hair straightener (I won the fight, apparently causing damage to her face). Now she is refusing to pay $650(or any money) for my broken property and saying I must first pay for hospital bills however I fought her purely in self-defense immediately after she slapped me. This all happened because she refused to leave my home and got angry when I kept asking her. Neither of us have made police reports to my knowledge. My brother saw her break the TV and straightener. I am 17, she is 18. I live in New York. There were two witnesses to the fight, one of which claims I hit her first(friend of HERS, uninvited as well) and one who claims to have "not seen anything because he was talking to witness 1", also uninvited. I have no marks on me what so ever, no proof that I was attacked.
