okay so heres the deal. Haley's father and i broke up. and we have to go to court for paternity establishment. just about 2 months ago he started to come around, pay me money and talked about us being a family and assured me for a change. well he told me for court he didn't want any attorneys and just him and i discuss the situations. i looked online and found out he had an attorney. he doesn't know i know this. i went and got one anyways. so for the past 2 weeks, he has been distant, not really coming around for haley and doesn't even answer my calls and returns them. i found out he got a girlfriend/screw buddy, whatever she is. so i drove to his friends house and asked his friend to contact him and tell him i want to speak with him. well he came over and i asked him why he's playing me and his daughter and asked about his new gf. he denied it. then he said i never wanted to get back with you and i didn't even love you. well i was really upset by that statement so i said i was cheating on him (even though i wasn't) because he did it to me in the past and even though we aren't together now, he's playing me. well he got mad and flicked a lit cigarette in my face causing a burn mark under my eye. then he had said haley probably isn't even my kid now, and i replied saying unfortunately she is and i swear to god i wish she weren't. and he said seriously?! and i said im dead serious. he then punched me in the face. so i punched him back, he shoved me until i was almost on the ground, and kicked my car 3 times and punched my window. he ranted some other things to me, and then yelled see you in court, got in his truck peeled out and ended up breaking his friends truck window because a rock flung up and busted it. i went to the cop station to report him. he got arrested. they called me back and said they wanted to talk. i go there and then i get arrested (i didn't need to stay in jail though) he told the police i attacked him so he flung a cigarette in my face, and thats all he admitted to but said i hit him first. we have a 72 hour restraining order on each other and have to go to court. when we are able to speak again, should i even bother and let him know how upset i am and how he hurt me. any one else in this situation?
