Assault and battery are separate crimes, often charged together. They are crimes of violence occurring between anyone other than spouses, domestic partners and others in romantic relationships. Fights at bars, parties and other events are common examples.

Assault involves a threat or attempt to cause physical harm to another person. Battery is the actual harm or violence done to someone. A battery can be any touch that is harmful or offensive, including a punch, kick, slap, or even spitting on a person.
