"Thank God for Smartphones"

NyPo explains:
Jorge Peña — a former pro baseball prospect — was riding the train home from work Friday night when a pack of wild women started mocking his clothes and then one pulled off her stiletto boot and hit him in the head.
“I never slapped anyone before. Especially a girl,” said the 6-foot-6 Peña.
“But when I saw that blood, I couldn’t take it. She attacked me like a man.”..
The woman who allegedly hit Peña with her stiletto boot, Danay Howard, 21, and Shanique Campbell, 20, who clobbered Peña with her purse, were charged with felony assault.
On the YouTube video, they are seen mocking Peña and knocking the phone from the hand of the person filming them before Howard attacks Peña and he responds by slapping her.
“You got a wack 8-ball jacket that came out in 1990,” Howard yells at Peña. “Get your money game up.”
The jacket was named one of the “Greatest Fashion Trends” of the ’90s by Complex Magazine and was featured on an episode of “Seinfeld.”
“Thank God for smartphones,” said defense attorney Cary London, of the law firm London Indusi.
“The DA’s office was able to have all of the information in front of them at an early stage to show that our client did nothing wrong and acted in self-defense.”
Peña plans to sue the city over his four days spent in jail after his arrest, said London.
