Assault charge after a fight

John doe
Hi, my name is Albert and I'm in a bit of a predicament. The other night I was leaving a gas station in my corvette behind another guy in a truck, we turned onto the same street and he pulled to the side to what I thought, let me by. Well he swerved at my car missing it by inches, I turned around to see what the problem was and he was pulling into his driveway, we exchanged words and I got out of my car and we continued to argue ( I had a beer in my left hand since my house was a block away and less than a mile from the house) well in the middle of arguing he took his fingers and jammed them into my throat in a pushing motion so I dropped the bottle and hit him a few times and when he hit the ground I stopped and walked to my car and left. Well he pressed charges (guessing assault) but is also claiming I hit him in the head with the bottle (officer told me his injuries weren't consistent with a bottle hit and they found the bottle a good 20 feet from the incident so my guess he threw it at my car when I was leaving) they have took pictures of all this. Is there a chance of the judge throwing the charges out because he touched me first or am I going to be looking at assault with a deadly weapon charges because of he said she said. We both had witnesses on scene and are in the report.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
