Individuals are often surprised when they are charged with assault because the assault charge stems from an argument they had with a family member or a disagreement at a social establishment.
Arizona law defines Assault as:
- Intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causing any physical injury to another person
- Intentionally placing another person in reasonable apprehension of impending physical injury
- Knowingly touching another person with the intent to injure, insult, or provoke such person
