I live in California and today I was at a store where they overcharged me for a product (the product was literally marked a different price than what they keyed in). I didn't catch it until it had charged my card, and then afterwards they refused to correct the charge saying all sales are final. I then threatened to commit suicide if they didn't correct the charge and they called the police. I ran away but now I'm wondering, am I in any legal peril?
My understanding is that suicide is not illegal in California and therefore threatening it is of no consequence. It also is not a criminal threat according to my understanding as a criminal threat is only applicable towards another person or people.
In addition, this is money they legally owe me and are refusing to pay, not some attempt at extortion. Though I will admit this was a blatant attempt to use emotion to manipulate the situation, doing so is also not illegal to my understanding.
Thanks for any insight! Note: I am not actually suicidal. Please do not worry for my safety.
