Assault is a violent crime that involves threatening violence or physical harm against someone and having the apparent means to do so. Threatening someone with a weapon while having the weapon in hand can constitute aggravated assault, a felony offense. If the victim is a family member, it can be considered domestic violence. Depending upon the circumstances, assault could be filed as a misdemeanor or a felony, either of which can be very serious. In many cases, when assault, the threat of the crime, is coupled with battery, the actual physical violence, the charges are filed as both assault and battery.
