Assault charges come in many forms. Some examples include:
- Simple assault. These don't necessarily require any harm or even physical contact. Instead, you can be accused simply by putting someone in fear through threats of violence.
- Aggravated assault. This is a more serious charge. It may pop up in situations involving bar fights in which substantial harm was caused.
- Felonious assault. This is extremely serious and frequently involves the use of a weapon. That could mean throwing a bottle in a bar fight or running someone off the road with a car in a road rage situation.
