Isnt this a private matter between those involved. When I was a lad, this was how we settled our differences! The Police would prosecute people for riding bicycles on pavements and not having lights, would give you a good clip round the ear for no particualr reason and laugh as you cowered in fear, You settled differences with others, backed by three or four mates and using bottles and knives, you never minded a little bit of horseplay with anyone off the Radio One Road show (or the fairground lads for free tickets!) and if you went out, got drunk and had a seedy encounter, you shut up about it and washed everything in Dettol. Now...Police are called for everything, Taser you for nowt, and you pick up bloody Chlymidea for any old Tom that tonsil tickle ya. I miss the old days.
