Assault and Battery in Texas
While assault and battery are considered separate crimes in some states, they are often committed in conjunction with one another. Assault generally refers to the threat of bodily injury whereas battery generally refers to the physical infliction of bodily injury. However, in Texas, the term assault is used when referring to all assaultive offenses.

What Are the Assault Charges in Texas?
