If I egged a car but they egged me back, should I be worried of a charge?
Question Details: My car, along with some friend's cars, where egged after we egged some people who were essentially using some of their parking without our permission. We were immature and egged their car to tell them to stop instead of towing them. Then they egged us back. I'm worried they will press charges, even though they also egged our cars.

Yes, they can press charges against you (e.g. some sort of disorderly conduct): the fact that they retaliated against you does not mean they can't press charges--though it does mean you in turn could press charges against them, since you egging teir car does not give them the right to egg yours back.
As the saying goes, "2 wrongs don't make a right). In other words, even if they egged your car (for which you can take action), the other party still can make a claim against you for damaging their property.
