An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry you're still awaiting a response, but this forum isn't set up for attorneys to reach out to help you - you have to reach out to them. This is only a Q & A Board, not an attorney referral...Read more »
You are asking your child's other parent a question about where they are taking your child and they are ignoring you so to prevent them from taking the child you grab their keys. After doing so they push you into a window, twist your arm and punch you. Are they legally justified?

As an alternative, consider going to the County courthouse and swearing out a warrant against him for Protection from Abuse. (PFA) The Circuit or District Court Clerks will probably help you fill out the form....Read more »

It isn't useless information, it would be about the 10th or 11th most important thing I'd say during a trial. But, this isn't the smoking gun that get you off the hook if the video is otherwise good: meaning that it is clearly you and its obvious that your selling drugs on the video.
