    Laws - View Law: FIGHTING AND ASSAULT


    An assault is committed any time a person knowingly causes physical injury to another person. It is also any time that someone may feel physically threatened or when someone touches someone else to provoke or insult them. (A.R.S. § 13-1203).

    Sometimes assault is classified as a misdemeanor. Aggravated assault is a felony. It is important to know this and to realize that fighting can be illegal. If you are involved in a fight, you could also be charged with disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace.

    FIRST OF ALL, THERE IS NO NEED TO FIGHT, THESE LAWS MIGHT SOUND STUPID, BUT THEY ARE MADE FOR SOME SIMPLE REASON... AND THAT IS TO PROTECT US!!! AND IT TAKES AN ADULT OR A MATURE PERSON TO REALIZE THIS....SO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WRITE PLEASE!!!! YOU MIGHT THINK ITS RIGHT TO DEFEND YOURSELF, AND I AGREE WITH YOU TO THE FULLEST .. BUT MERA, PROBLEMS ONLY COME TO YOU IF YOU LOOK FOR THEM.. SOMEONE IS NOT JUST GONNA GO UP TO YOU AND PUNCH YOU LOL. AS A MATURE PERSON YOU SHOULD TRY TO AVOID CONFRONTATIONS... ITS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.. CHEKEAMO...

    I dont get why we can't fight. And if we do we get in trouble i think that's dumb. Because if someone was in my face and talking stuff to me im going to defend myself! Not just stand there and not do anything. Whut would you do if someone came up to you and hit you? your not gonna tell the teacher are you? No your gonna hit them back its self defence!! So why do we get in trouble for it?
