Actions That Constitute Assault

Assault involves either verbally or physically threatening another person with violence, causing fear of immediate battery in the alleged victim. In Massachusetts, assault is a misdemeanor charge with possible penalties for conviction resulting in a prison sentence of up to 2.5 years and up to a $500 fine. Assault charges can involve a wide variety of actions.

Some examples of assault include:

  • Throwing a punch
  • Coming at someone in a way that shows intent to use force
  • Menacing conduct
  • A person claiming that he has a gun or another weapon
  • Shouting threats
  • Breaking a beer bottle in a bar fight and threatening someone

In order for a defendant to be convicted, the prosecutor must prove that the defendant intended to commit battery or put the alleged victim in fear of harm, and that the defendant engaged in activity that was perceived as imminently threatened or came close to causing harm to the alleged victim. If physical contact was involved, you could be charged with assault and battery.
