The distinction between assault and battery in Texas

Assault and battery are two legal terms that frequently are used together. Here in Texas, as opposed to many other states, the term "assault" covers both the threat of violence and the acts of it as well. In other words, what, across the state line in Louisiana, would be known as battery, falls under the umbrella of assault here in Texas.
