It is not uncommon for someone with no prior criminal record to be caught up in an altercation that results in assault charges. Sometimes a person has anger management challenges; other times, some unexpected conflict ends up with police action and an arrest.
In crowded situations, police sometimes arrest large numbers of people as a form of crowd control, effectively leaving it to the court system to sort out who is actually guilty of any crime. If you have been charged with assault or any crime in similar circumstances, you may stand an excellent chance of coming out of it without a criminal record, but you will need an attorney on your side as soon as possible.
