Many people do not know that "assault" and "battery" are entirely different crimes in Nevada. In fact, assault is like an attempted battery. For example if someone punches you, you have been battered. But if someone lifts his/her fist to punch you, causing you to reasonably believe you are about to be punched, then you are just being assaulted because no actual physical contact is taking place.
Note that assault and battery can be prosecuted as either misdemeanors in Nevada or felonies in Nevada depending on the severity of the circumstances. Situations involving deadly weapons, strangulation, or substantial bodily harm in Nevada to the victim automatically result in felony charges.
