so at my son's kindergarten graduation, the teachers made a scrapbook for the year. I asked my ex for it so I could make him a copy and put it in his "my life" scrapbook.
once he realized that I had no intention of giving him the original he flipped out and said he wanted it back (in the classroom). I told him to go away and stop acting like a child.
So then I'm outside watching my son play on the playground-not 15 ft from me- and he comes up to me again saying that he should get it and that he wants the original and I again, tell him to go away and leave me alone before he puts me in to labor (I'm 9 months pregnant).
At this point his girlfriend approaches me and stands within a foot of me and says she's not going anywhere without the book. I tell her to leave me alone or I'm calling the cops. She takes a step closer to me as I'm walking away and I go to walk back in to the classroom and she tries to take the book from out of my hands and scratching up my arm from my tight grip on it.
I filed a police report but because she didn't actually touch me, I'm not pressing charges. I'm wondering if I should file a TPO on her or just let it go.
We have court coming up soon so I can easily just put the police report and picture of my arm in the case file for the judge to review but should I be worried that she's going to get violent on me again since she did this in front of my son at his school........?
