Alpo Posted March 26 Share Posted March 26 Just trying to get this straight in my mind. If I try to hurt someone, that's assault. If I succeed in hurting them, that's battery. Right? So if I take a swing at somebody and miss, that's assault, but if I connect, that's battery. Women's basketball. Bowling Green versus Memphis. After the game, as the two teams are walking by shaking hands "good game good game", that kind of stuff, one of the Memphis players punches one of the Bowling Green players. Drops her down on the floor. Kapow. It says that after viewing the video of it, the Memphis player was charged with assault. Just seems to me that it would be battery. Right? https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2023/03/24/sport/bowling-green-basketball-struck-memphis-spt-intl/index.html 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
