Who Presses Charges for Domestic Violence?: When you are in a fight with a loved one or someone that you had any level of intimate relations with you could be arrested. The person that you are fighting with can call the police on you and tell them the situation. An officer will arrive on the scene and take a report on the story and what they deduce has likely happened. The person that has been deemed the aggressor of the person that has injured another will be arrested. The problem is that the person you are in a fight with is not the only person that can call on you. A neighbor that overhears the fight or someone who can see what is happening can also call. The officer may pull up and see the fight in progress and take the arrest into their own hands.
