arabian will become famous soon enough

You do not live with your ex. She assaulted you in your home. I agree with Berner_Faith. Of course police have to deal with people who pack-pedal after the incident and it probably creates lots of paperwork for them. This is not your concern.

If more men would adopt a zero tolerance to domestic violence from their ex-wives then I think we could see a change in how courts process charges. Perhaps there would be an allocation of resources for men's shelters and counselling services.

If your ex gets an admonition from the judge and told to attend anger management then that is a good thing. She will then be put on the police 'radar' and you can then have some reassurance that should she become aggressive again that you can call the police and receive immediate assistance. Hopefully this is true.

I'd proceed and quit listening to other nay-sayers who tell you that to pursue the matter is a waste of time. Your situation is different from their situation. No children should have to be subjected to family violence. Your ex needs to be set straight. If your ex is slugging you in the stomach then it's safe to assume that your relationship with her can't get much worse than it already is.
