17. Throwing coffee in someone's face IS assault. Just because you don't think it IS assault does not

change the fact that it meets the definition of assault.

From lawyers.com

An assault is an intentional act that causes an apprehension or fear of imminent harmful or offensive contact based on a defendant's present ability to do so. The defendant must have the apparent ability to commit the assault, even if he or she is not actually capable of causing an injury. An assault is committed even if the contact never occurs.

If you want to test your legal theory go up to a cop and throw some coffee in his face. Let us know how that works out, OK.
