Arrest For Assault

In Texas, assault charges can range from misdemeanor assault charges to felony assault, with numerous charges falling in both categories. An individual can be charged with assault with a bodily injury if the alleged victim felt pain after the encounter, even if there are no visible bruises or scratches.
