According to Texas law, the charge commonly known as "assault and battery" is actually simply known as assault. Under the common definition, there is a distinction between assault and battery in that assault is merely intentional threats of violence, while battery is the actual infliction of violence upon a victim; in Texas' definition of the crime, however, the two terms are combined.
