    Yes, you may be charged. A mere threat to inflict bodily injury, property damage, or damage to reputation upon another, when accompanied by an intention to cause alarm or to coerce the victim to do something he is not legally bound to do, may amount to criminal intimidation under section 503 of the Penal Code. It matters not that there was no eye witness or CCTV recording.
