    We've had that discussion before - if you are beaten with a tire iron and sent to the ER, you must go to the police station with a lawyer as soon as you are released or else that assault with a deadly weapon will be written up as a noise complaint.

      if you're beaten with a tire iron, the hospital staff automatically calls the police.  This is most especially true if you're a child.  Still doesn't mean charges will be filed, but if you want them to, they can be.

      That's why there have been cases of shootouts where one person died, and the shooter who, himself, got shot, disappears and tries to get medieval-style medical help outside the system.
