Seriously I read into that waiting for the "and then I pulled my gun and asked them "are you feeling lucky, punk?"" punch-line, but it didn't come.
Seriously I'm proud of you for standing up for someone; had to re-read the post to realize you were only facing a single person and not two guys, which makes it less "scary" (I thought you took two guys out with two bottles, but instead you just royally worked one guy over) - from the perspective of fighting >1-1 odds being no-fun. But again, good job and I'm glad nobody got killed.
And seriously wth - the guy is willing to take an AnB pop because they won't take his CC? Yeah, that's a totally reasonable reason to spend the next 3-5 in prison and be a labeled violent offender for the rest of your life.
On the upside, I don't think he'll need to worry about nobody taking his CC after he gets out, given that employment that could sustain that kind of thing will be hard to come-by.
As far as you getting sued, if the shop owner doesn't go that route, I'd say it's unlikely - you're probably more likely to be called as a witness when this champ gets out of the hospital so he can go to his sentencing hearing.
Question of the day though - given that this chump didn't seem to care that he was on camera, that there were witnesses, etc while he was committing his AnB, do you think this would've ended peacefully if you *had* drawn a lethal weapon? Something tells me it wouldn'tve stopped until you put him down, one way or another.
Oh and +yeah to glass bottles being pretty robust - they do not break like in the movies when you nail someone in the head with them. The only thing I'd say "be thankful" for is that you got one of the glass ones, and not the newer PET ones.
