In real life how would a court rule out this?

This is the grit ball scene:


Technically wouldn't she still get charged for leaving possible 2nd degree burns on his face?

Updates:
This is just a movie but if this type of reply happen in real life, would it still be ruled out that it was self-defense on her part or would she still be charged?

    • Strange. I can see it.
      Ok the scene goes like this (from Madea's Family Reunion)

      Abusive fiance Carlos comes in and shortly slaps Lisa hard.
      Lisa grabs the pot full of hot grits and throws it all over his face (we can then assumed he got like 2nd degree burns by that).
      Carlos is agonizing in pain.
      Lisa grabs the pan and hits him with it 7-8 times before tossing out the ring and leaves.

      How would a court rule that out?

    • Carlos assaulted first, so maybe Lisa can get off with self-defense, but she used excessive force, so he can possibly pursue damages.

  • Can't see it...

    • Things are different in movies than how it would be in real life if they did the same thing.

    • Says..."Error occured. Please try again later." Yes, she would possibly get charged. Whoever calls the police first, wins. That's how it usually plays out in the real world.
