My initial thoughts are that you would probably be ok in using a blunt object. To the best of my knowledge, there are no organizations like; "Doctors against blunt objects" or "Mothers Against Blunt Objects".
And as odd as it may seem, the courts generally understand normal human reactions. If this individual needs the application of a blunt object against the side of his - or her - head, you may find a sympathetic court.
Then again - what do I know?

The law is settled in this area. A wooden bat, such as the one Juan Marichal used to brain Johnny Roseboro, is quite legal. However, the metal bat, when cranium-aimed, is quite felonious.

That will be $500, please.
