Did he get you in a head-lock or anything or did he shove you over?

Either way, not nice - certainly not a delivery experience I've ever had. Did once have an experience where some obnoxious tosser came to read the electricity meter who was very rude to the (now) wife. I verbally tore him a new one before booting him out; I thought he might try and hit me at one point, but I think he sensed the "gravity" of who he might be hitting (good job for him, too).

Still, probably a good thing you didn't shoot him. Best thing to do now is to get yourself a contemporaneous record of the event, police statements, witnesses and etc. You can bet your life he's going to go on "sick" leave and when he eventually gets fired he'll come after you for some concocted fiction. Forewarned is forearmed... get he facts down now and you'll have no problem when the inevitable court case comes up.
