In times of distress, any person can lose control of their temper and do something they later regret. When one individual touches another individual against that person’s will and causes harm, it may be considered battery. If this type of action is witnessed by an outside party, law enforcement may get involved and make an arrest for the charge of battery. It is important that you consult with a Weston criminal defense attorney from the Law Office of Kevin F. Moot as soon as possible after you have been arrested.
