I was wondering if anybody could tell me, how long after an incident occures, can a formal charge/complaint be registered, in the case of an assult/battery. I was phisicaly removed from a premisis, by security staff who failed to ask me to leave, before restraining me. I was, before this in no way being violent toward staff or patrons. At the time I decided against further action, however, the establishment has decided to take matters further. this incident occured on the 7/8/05 it is now 9/9/05 any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
