Definition of Assault in Texas
According to Texas Penal Code §22.01, a person is guilty of committing assault when they intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to another, threaten another with imminent bodily injury, or cause physical contact that they should reasonably believe will be regarded as offensive or provocative. This can be charged as anything from a Class C misdemeanor to a second-degree felony. Penalties range from a fine of $500 to a fine of up to $10,000 and / or a prison sentence of up to 20 years.

Aggravated assault (Tex. Pen. Code §22.02) is also possible if the offender causes serious bodily injury to the victim or uses or displays a deadly weapon during the assault. This offense is either a second-degree felony or a first-degree felony, depending on whether the injury was caused to a family member, on-duty public servant, or resulted out of reckless discharge of a firearm.
