Ok, so most of you know I have had an ongoing problem with the neighbor who lives above me. They make constant banging noises, and it appeared that they were purposely doing it when they would stomp specific beats on my ceiling. Around Christmas time they were particularly loud so I had banged on the ceiling. Their response was to stomp and jump up and down to make as much noise as possible for the rest of the night. So, last night they started up again. I was so sick and tired of it that I walked upstairs (which is difficult since I hurt my legs) and knocked on the door. An old lady answered. I suspected it to be a young single mother, as there are 3 children in that one bedroom apartment with her, but they must be her grandchildren. I very politely and cordially asked her to please keep the noise down, as I had a very difficult day and needed to relax. She was very sarcastic when she answered back, but made like she was going to try to keep it down. So I go back downstairs to continue what I was doing. Not 5 minutes later, they start the immature jumping up and down on the ceiling. I called a courtesy officer to check it out, but they never responded. After about an hour and a half, hoping they would eventually get tired and cease the noise, I went up there again and knocked on the door. This old lady answers again, with all cordial pretense gone. She looked absolutely livid and crazed. She started yelling at me like a banshee, getting in my face to the point where she was spraying it, and not saying it. She yells that she pays to rent there, and that I shouldn't complain over any inconsequential noises they make, and because of me and all of my complaining to the front office, they have to move out in a week. She continues screaming at me and then starts pushing me around. She may be old, but that lady was strong as an ox. I finally lost my temper, and punched her in the mouth. I wasn't arrested last night, but she is bringing charges against me. Apparently she is in the hospital now because of a heart attack, and the blame is being put on me for that. I know I shouldn't have hit a 78 year old woman, but I felt that I was more on the defense than anything else. I was just told about the charges, and I'm trying to figure out how I should proceed. Any advice?
