Understanding NYC Assault Laws

Can you go to jail for taking a swing at another person during a bar fight?

You certainly can. New York takes assault charges very seriously.

Of course, bar fights aren’t all that common. Nevertheless, assaults happen in New York every day. Recently a man was arrested for going after someone with a baseball bat in broad daylight.

Assault may be charged either as a misdemeanor or a felony in New York.
