In this video, you should consider the following:
- Imminent apprehension is NOT the same thing as fear.
- The defendant must put the plaintiff in fear of an imminent harmful or offensive touching, but the touching doesn’t have to be one the defendant would have created (I yell “look there is a snake behind you!” I know there was no snake, so I burst out laughing when you freak out. That is still assault, even though I couldn’t put the touching in motion.
- The apprehension must be reasonable.
- The apprehension must be imminent: a vague threat of possible future harm is not imminence.
