A group of teenagers were damaging peoples property around my neighborhood. They noticed that I called the cops and they bashed in the windshield of my vehicle. In the heat of the moment, I chased them down and pushed down one of the girls. I received a citation for 5th degree assault. I've never been to court before, so I don't know what to do. How can I avoid this on my record?

Get a good defense lawyer. Avoid talking about it online or in person with anyone but your lawyer. Don't plead guilty to assault. Discuss with your lawyer and work with your lawyer.
