    Pepper spray could be a good way to get them out of my personal space.

    I don't know about your neck of the woods, but around here, "minors" commit quite a few murders.

    I've read some good responses...and some funny ones (my wife would've probably deflated their egos too)

    First and foremost you should've called the police, a battery occured where your wife was the victim (also typically the first person to report is the "victim" until the investigation is completed)

    If you had OC then that's a viable option certainly. If they had pushed the issue then certainly I would've used force (let them sue me!) There's an old saying "Big boy game...Big Boy Rules" if you're old enough to act in that manner you're old enough to accept the butt kicking that comes along with it.

    When I switched from Karate to Aikido we had just had two lessons when a class mate introduced a would be thief to just one of the two techniques we had learned.

    The student only intended to put the guy down, but it happened to be a spinning type move and he was unable to finish the spin because a brick wall interfered with the BG's head.

    I met my wife while we were both on active duty in the Marine Corps. She is small but would definitely deflate alot of men's egos, but certainly juveniles. I doubt I would have to do anything in that situation. On the chance my wife didn't take care of it, if a juvenile got in my face like that, I would have probably hip-checked him. 200lbs against 75-100 lbs isn't much of a contest.

    I agree with the others that if they act like grown ups, then treat them as such. When he touched your wife you had every right to defend her, kid or no kid.

    Take him by the hand, take all the slack out of his wrist and elbow joints and escort him to the nearest populated area and commence the public spanking.

    What basically happened is the kid was using the fact that he was a minor to mess with you. He probably figured you wouldn't do anything to him because he was underage and you would be worried about getting sued. This would not have worked with me. I would have first told them to watch how they talked and once he touched her I would have slapped the kid. IF my wife didn't beat me to it. I don't know what the laws are where you are, but most places allow you to defend youself against a minor if he assaults you.
    Grabbing someones butt without permission is assault, minor or not. My wife is very attractive and I have thought about this situation before. I would rather spend a night in jail than spend a night listening to her complain about me not doing anything about it.

    I would have slapped him to the ground.

I told them enough and to get out of here. This is when it got to the point I wasn't sure how to proceed. One gets up into my face and starts pressing against me(I am 6' 200lbs work out a lot so no fat). This kid was skinny probably 75-100lbs. His friend or brother told him lets go.... that man is gonna kick your a$$. Well they did leave after another min or two. Now what would you have done? I wanted to push him to the ground but being a kid didn't know what to do. Do you think a little OC would have been appropriate?
    Wow, he was trying to show off. He probably already has a criminal record. When he pressed against you after grabbing your wife I think it would have been perfectly acceptable to have taken him down but not striking him. It would have been good had there been some adult witnesses as well. Holding him down and calling the police to take his butt downtown would have probably taught him a lesson. Or at least get him to apologize before letting him back up. Just look around and make sure he doesn't have a gang around to back him up.

    Where did this happen?
    Yoda, I am, yes.

    It's amazing how different the responses are in this thread vs http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...dled-date.html

    First he gets a chance to apologize, then he gets a chance at a hammerlock and a chance to apologize to my wife. At worst he gets a dislocated shoulder and a broken wrist. For some reason I believe the tough kid will apologize.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Yes he was pressed up on me. I was trying not to laugh but at the same time he was ******* me off. I ran this by a LEO I know and he said I should have gave him a "shove" as hard as I could. He said it would have been ok to do that but I am not so sure. Plus I just didn't want to get this turned around on me if I hurt him. It happened outside of a movie theater. It was day time and there was not too many people around from what I remember.
