Many people do not realize how simple it is to get charged with assault. It can result from an argument at a bar going to far, a dispute between neighbors getting a little to heated, or an altercation outside of a sporting event.

In Tennessee assault can occur in three different forms:

  1. Intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another;
  2. Intentionally or knowingly causes another to reasonably fear imminent bodily injury; or
  3. Intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another and a reasonable person would regard the contact as extremely offensive or provocative.
