What Is the Difference Between an Assault and Battery?
What Is Considered Assault?
An assault is the threat of an attack or an action which can cause someone to believe an attack is immanent. An example of this would be someone clenching a fist with close enough distance to strike a person or someone purposely swerving a car in your direction. Assault does not require any contact with the victim.
What Is Considered Battery?
Battery, on the other hand, requires some sort of contact with the senses. It could even be someone playing very loud music which damages your hearing.
However, typically the contact is physical touch, such as:
- From throwing a punch
- Or from causing an object to strike the victim
