Guy threw drink on my back did I overreact?

I just got in from getting thrown out of the club for fighting

I was walking by a group of guys and as I go past I suddenly feel a whole drink being poured over my back then I turn round and see the arm of the perpetrator.

Without thinking I pushed him. They were raised up a little on some steps and he is pushed down the steps.

He then comes up to me sizing up so I hold his arms and think (I better deal with this quickly) so I headbutt him. He was taller so I got him nicely in the teeth.

He gets one blow on the face to me which I didn't feel at the time. He then pushes me to the ground but I have his arm and I;m twisting it so he doesn't get to give me more blows.

The bouncer then has us both by the neck then pushes me out bidding me goodnight.

I feel bad right after in case it was an accident so go up to him and apologize saying 'Did you throw a drink on me? Anyway I'm sorry it was a kneejerk reaction'.

As he speaks I see he has blood on his teeth. He said something about it being a mistake and seemed to accept my apology somewhat but then I could tell his anger was welling up again so he accepted it somewhat and then told me I shouldn't have done that then told me to **** off and walked away.

I felt bad after but he was ok so not so bad. A good learning experience.

How could I have better dealt with it to prevent blows? I imagine just sternly grabbing him and taking him aside to question him could have diffused the situations without it having come to that.

Thoughts?

Ask him what the f*** his problem is, if he apoligizes accept if not then hit him.

Just to add, sternly grabbing a guy in a bar and trying to drag him aside is likely gonna end up with your teeth bleeding especially if he is with a group of guys.

True.

They were wimpy indie guys though so was quit confident they wouldn't have all jumped me.

Nonetheless I guess dragging him would not be the best idea as that is a precursor to fighting.

Like you say a 'wtf?' could prob have replaced my immediate pushing then if he still is remorseless I would be in a better position for a stealthy jab as the pushing and shoving is just silly showmanship and makes things too obvious.

Take your shirt off (if your ripped) Say wtf was that for dude!! Depending on his reaction you should know what to do. If he did it on purpose you grab the nearest drink and return the favor and if he wants to fight after you fight... if it was an accident he will say sorry and maybe even offer to buy u a drink. Sh!t happens.

To be honoust, if when you turn around his facial expression should tell you whether it was on purpose or not.

Either way, getting into a fight over that is pathetic. Control your temper next time.

If your name is chuck norris, then yes you should have sternly grabbed him and taken him outside to question him.

Lol at the chuck norris comment.

Well of course I am not chuck however as my idol I aspire to follow in his footsteps and look to him for how to act morally in any given situation...
