When it comes to assault, people commit violent acts for just about any reason. In recent news, a California man was accused of shooting his son over “bad karaoke singing.” If you think that’s weird, a man in Florida made the news after telling his girlfriend that he would “kill her because she is liberal.” The man showed up at his girlfriend’s house naked multiple times, choked her and warned he that he would “kill her and burn her home.” The man now faces charges for domestic battery, aggravated assault and criminal mischief.
Another woman was arrested for throwing a frying pan at her nephew and repeatedly playing too loud AC/DC’s song “Highway to Hell.” Human beings can get “riled up” over silly little things and before you know it, can be saddled with assault charges. Even if you were just illegally in possession of a weapon, you could face assault charges.
There are many forms of assault which include battery, aggravated assault and sexual assault. The common denominators present in these attacks include:
- An attempt to cause bodily injury
- An attempt to have sexual activity without another’s consent
- An attempt to cause bodily injury with a weapon
While all assault convictions can come with severe penalties, when an individual assaults a police officer or other public official he/she could face especially harsh consequences. Regardless of the details surrounding your case, if you face assault charges you should not dismiss them as no big deal.
