“My client was using mace. They were using a brick. I can’t understand the nature of the charges based on what I heard.”

Gee….Let me try to help clear it up for you, Mr. Santicola. “They” were in their own home, minding their own business. Your client decided to show up uninvited at their home and proceeded to spray them with mace. In my opinion your client should consider herself fortunate because the homeowner could have just as easily shot her instead of being kind and just hitting her with a brick. Perhaps you and your client would have a bit more credibility if you explained how that errant brick ended up going through the homeowners window and landing on her couch. Let me guess, it bounced off your client’s head and went crashing through the homeowner’s window??

Note to self – if you ever decide to attack someone with mace be sure to hire an attorney who doesn’t make stupid statements to the media.
