If someone swings at me and misses, can I hit them and not get arrested?

Issues with a crazy coworker. I'm just waiting for her to take the first swing. I know she wants to.
Update: Actually, I was already assured by my work that I will not be fired if she takes the first swing (as long as I don't instigate it). But I want to know if that goes for being arrested, too.
