The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • To prove assault under either the criminal definition of assault or the assimilated tort definition, a sufficient causal nexus must exist among the elements of the offense–under the criminal definition, the perpetrator must commit the overt act with the intent to inflict bodily harm and have the present ability to inflict that harm; under the tort definition, the perpetrator must commit the overt act with the intent to place the victim in fear of bodily harm and the overt act must create reasonable fear in the victim.

Woods v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Appellant assaulted and battered a special agent with the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). A jury of the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia) convicted appellant of felony assault and battery of a law-enforcement officer, in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(C). Appellant sought review of the trial court’s decision.  On appeal, appellant argued that the ABC agent was not a law-enforcement officer as defined under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(E) and, he was, therefore, guilty of only simple assault and battery, a Class 1 misdemeanor pursuant to Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(A)..
