Aggravated Assault Arizona A.R.S. §13-1204
In Arizona, Aggravated Assault occurs in two different ways: 1) if the person either causes serious physical injury or substantial disfigurement to another, or 2) the person uses a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument to intentionally place somebody in imminent fear of serious physical injury.
Aggravated Assault (Vehicular) can also occur if somebody is drunk behind the wheel of a car and has an accident which results in serious physical injury or substantial disfigurement. For more information on the Vehicular Aggravated Assault charge please see our main site dmcantor.com.

Another way to commit Aggravated Assault (ARS 13-1204) is if the person commits a misdemeanor assault on a police officer, teacher, prosecutor, health care provider, or prison guard it automatically becomes a felony.
Lastly, a person can commit Aggravated Assault if they are 18 years of age or older and commit a misdemeanor assault on a child who is 15 or younger. Charges are then automatically escalated to Aggravated Assault.
