Surely it should not matter that there 5 of them if they were all together, they all stuck together with their story.jt9563 said:For shitty regimental crap indeed, all the time! But if 5 civvies have lodged a compliant, I suspect it is not minor. If he is innocent, go for it by all means, but if he riled them or aggrevated the situation or there is more to this than meets the eye, he would need to way up his Pro's and Cons and have a ggod think about whether it is worth it.
The (his) story is he was riled first, they tried to push in front of hm in a cab rank with one of them getting in the cab, he dragged that one out of the cab, he was hit by another one then retaliated another came for him and he defended himself. He was riled first, then he was hit first. In all honesty tt sounds like a load of old handbags and a couple of cut lips to me.
I am not sure how he will be able to weigh things up but on reflection and as previously stated with some research and some of the opinions here the CM seems a reasonable route especially with the prospect of someone thinking there is no real evidence to proceed with and therefore dropping the thing totally.
