if your answer is not to move then you have to work it out.

bringing police in will make things difficult from here on in.

I would try to talk to the party one on one in a calm manner and explain that if he has a problem with you in the future to just ask to talk and not scream in front of a child. Explain he would not have wanted you to do so in front of his family either.
