What evidence? Pictures of a car parked at Wal-mart? Threatened? "He approached me in a threatening manner" - yeah, that will stand up in court. What witnesses? People in a parking lot watching two guys argue about an incident that none of them saw? Pray tell what would you expect the police to do in response to your emergency? (911 is for emergencies, no?).
