I've lived in a really abusive family enviornment. And because of that i've had the protective instinct of like a mother bear.

Last night my stepdad and my grandparents got into a fight. He was calling them dirty names and locking them out of the house. and in order to protect my grandparents i threw two water bottles at the wall that was about 2 feet away from my stepdad just to scare him away.

Then the police came because my neighbor called the police and my stepdad accused me of threatening with weapons. i had gone over to my friend's house by that point, had no idea he accused me to that. My stepdad wouldn't tell me whether they asked for my name or not.
But I wasnt arrested or contacted or anything
will this go on my record?

Given that you weren't questioned or taken in, it's unlikely this will go on your record.

I am a bit bothered, through, that the police did not contact family services on your behalf. It sounds like you may not be safe in your home. Do you want to contact them yourself so you can have a safer environment to live in?

I already have their number. I'm going to be 18 in like a month so it doesn't really matter anymore after I move out to college.

I'm just worried that his false accusation will impact me in the future.

You said that your stepfather was being abusive with your grandparents. Do they live at your house? If so, it might be a good idea to get help either way, so that even when you move out and go to college, your grandparents can be safe too. I assume they are elderly people, so maybe they can't defend themselves as well as younger people could (not to mean that they don't have any merit or strength themselves, though).

Just my two cents. [Smile]
