What Is Assault With a Dangerous Weapon?
Assault with a dangerous weapon is a felony charge involving someone making a threat while using a weapon such as a gun, knife or any other object that could be used to inflict physical harm. Physical harm does not have to take place in order for someone to be charged with this crime, as long as the other person believed he or she was in imminent danger of being harmed.
For example, someone who throws a beer bottle at someone in a bar or swings a pull cue at someone can be charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. Pulling out any threatening weapon, no matter how unconventional, could result in charges that expose you to harsh criminal penalties and a lifetime of collateral consequences.
