Assault and battery are two separate charges often filed together. There are many types of assault charges, including: cases involving accusations of assaults inflicting serious injuries; strangulation cases; misdemeanor assaults, both simple and aggravated; assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill; assaults related to punishments; assaults on the handicapped; assaults on the elderly; and affray (fighting in a public place and disturbing the peace). Battery involves unlawful physical contact and the use of force against another person. Assault may not include injury or harm, and no actual contact may have taken place.
