The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(C) does not require proof that the accused intentionally selected the victim as does a violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(A), (B). A person violates § 18.2-57(C) if he commits an assault or an assault and battery against another person, knowing or having reason to know that the other person is a law enforcement officer engaged in the performance of his public duties. Nothing in the language of § 18.2-57(C) indicates a desire by the legislature to mitigate the offense if an officer is accidentally assaulted by the accused striking out in general.
  • Under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(B), punishment for assault and battery is enhanced if a person intentionally selects the person against whom an assault and battery resulting in bodily injury is committed because of his race.
