Carl Ceder understands most people do not realize that they  can be arrested in Texas for an assault charge without using any physical force.  The law in Texas states that someone can be arrested and charged with an assault even if they just attempt to hurt someone.  Carl Ceder also states that a person can also be charged for a threat of force or use of force.  Battery is typically defined as the actual touching of the victim in either a harmful or offensive manner.  If the assault happens while the defendant is using a deadly weapon, it will most likely be charged as aggravated assault.

Carl Ceder says that most assault charges involve family members or conflicts in dating relationships. In these situations, emotions can run high and feelings can be tense.  Sometimes words are spoken and things are done, and the police are called to resolve the conflict. At that point,  a minor disturbance  suddenly becomes a criminal case.
