Assault crimes range from threats of violence which never take place to fights in bars, nightclubs, and sports or entertainment venues to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Assault is widely thought of as assault and battery, though these are separate crimes. Assault consists of an attempt, along with the ability to carry through, of inflicting violent injury on another. You can be convicted of assault without ever having touched the other person. By threatening to harm the person and putting him or her in fear of bodily injury, you can be charged with and convicted for assault.
