Drawn my weapon. Told him to stop. Put him down if he didn't.

This is assuming the situation went down as I am picturing in my mind.
This would likely be my answer as well.

but I wonder about the legalities of this course of action
Depends on your state law - stopping a felony in progress and preventing grievous injury or death of another is covered under mine.

ORC 2903.11 Felonious assault.
(A) No person shall knowingly do either of the following:

(1) Cause serious physical harm to another
Being beaten by a 6x6 thug sure sounds like felonious assault to me
