For an 'assault' charge, you need a physical injury to occur.BLAMMO said:Actually, the threshold for assault is surprisingly low. As it should be. Basically, nobody has any shittin' bizniz laying a finger on you for any reason. Grabbing something from you, against your will or wishes (even if they return it), is an assault. Maybe one of the resident mouthpieces would care to elaborate further.
"Menacing" is an even lower threshold. I think if you're just plain ugly and scary enough and speak like Loud Howard, you might be accused of menacing. (Okay, not really.)

Idiot that pulls that stunt on camera gets himself the attention he wanted, just not the kind of attention he wanted...he deserves it, and she's a twit for calling that an assaultbarfly said:Looked like a much needed career boost rather than an assault...I mean, she is a victims advocate....Speaking of which, how many times was the word victim mentioned in the piece, I lost count...
