Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • An assault requires an overt act or an attempt, or the unequivocal appearance of an attempt, with force and violence, to do physical injury to the person of another. There is no requirement that a victim be physically touched to be assaulted. A battery offense is the actual infliction of corporal hurt on another, wilfully or in anger, whether by the party's own hand, or by some means set in motion by him. The slightest touching of another, if done in a rude, insolent, or angry manner, constitutes a battery for which the law affords redress. An assault and battery is an unlawful touching of another. It is not necessary that the touching result in injury to the person. Whether a touching is a battery depends on the intent of the actor, not on the force applied. Where there is physical injury to another person, it is sufficient that the cause is set in motion by the defendant, or that the victim is subjected to its operation by means of any act or control which the defendant exerts. The law upon the subject is intended primarily to protect the sacredness of the person, and, secondarily, to prevent breaches of the peace.
