By some of the logic presented here.. If I told my gf, or a women, if you come home drunk again I'm gonna do your ass.. and they do.. I can cause I warned them ? Despite it not being consensual?
btw there are some flaws here.. Assault is Assault, in most places your Consent is irreverent to the law. Just because two people agree to fight doesn't make it legal. Additionally, someone agreeing to something at one point, does not make it legal at a later date. If a girl says yes, then later no, then it's still rape. If she says yes today, and 2 days from now I do her while she sleeps, it's still rape.
Do I think the whole thing is stupid and an overreaction, yes.
But if he wants to press charges, then he has the right. He was in no condition to consent. And you cannot assault someone for doing something lawful.. being Drunk is legal.
Additionally, the arrest probably had more to do with the domestic disturbance, and how they acted after the police showed up. Either he wanted charges to be pressed, of they were both off the deepend and the police arrested the only one they really could legally, to calm things down.
