OK OUJI-CR 8-6.  DEFENSE OF ANOTHER – WHEN DEFENSE NOT AVAILABLE

Defense of another is permitted as a defense solely because of necessity. Defense of another is not available to a defendant when the person on whose behalf the defendant intervened (was the aggressor)/(provoked another with the intent to cause the altercation)/(voluntarily entered into mutual combat), no matter how great the danger to personal security became during the altercation unless the right of defense of another is reestablished.
