Actually, in this state, the victim doesn't press the charges. The DA 
does. Once the police are called in, and someone is taken into custody, 
it doesn't make any difference if the victim wishes to drop the charges.

Yes, I know this because my friend had it happen to him. So... second 
hand experience. I watched it happen, and talked with both parties.
