Proportionate response is a thing in the USA too. And unless he was actively threatening your wife at the time, self defense will be a hard sell. Cops did what they were supposed to do, and a jury will have to decide if you slapping that guy through a glass window was justified or criminal.
Well he should be arrested too, but generally if you initiate violence in a situation like this, there's a term for that "assault and battery," and the cops were well within their right to arrest you, especially if your assault caused life-altering damage. He should be punished for vandalism, and likely assault for your wife. The fact that he pushed your wife may justify self-defense depending on state law, but you'll have to prove that in the court of law, and sell it to a jury as self defense. My advice: find a good criminal defense attorney.
I feel like the physical shove of his wife should be enough cause for self defense. He was protecting his wife from bodily harm at that point. If you do something like that then call the cops after reaping what you sow, then you are top level pussy and deserve all the shame in the world. Downvote me all you want, but you will never change my mind. Punk 100% brought that on himself. He is lucky he got an open hand slap and not a knuckle sandwich after touching someone's wife.
