---I'm confused, Ag Assault here is the charge but Paine didn't actually touch the guy with the knife. isn't that actually Menacing?

Assault = no contact. Had there been contact it becomes battery. Menacing must be a TV thing you picked up.....

thanks Mike, in common usage of the word "assault" we say "John assaulted Jon" ... we expect to see blood, guts, or at least a lump.

Bladerunner, not from TV, live and learn. from colorado: Colorado Felony Menacing

Menacing is the criminal charge that arises if you "knowingly" place someone "in fear of imminent serious bodily injury." In other words, you try to make someone believe they are going to get seriously hurt right now – not at some future date. In Colorado , the District Attorney must prove that you knew your actions were likely to make the person afraid, even if the person was not actually afraid.

Historically, in Colorado, it was necessary for the prosecutor to prove that you intended to cause fear. Now, however, the prosecutor only needs to prove a "knowing" state of mind, in other words, that you knew that you were likely to cause fear.

a litle google, I found Menacing is a common charge in many american states and several english speaking countries.
here's a gem eexample: Feb 5, 2010 ... Charlie Sheen will be charged with felony menacing and misdemeanor assault for allegedly putting a knife to his wife's throat

---I'm assuming the misdemeanor assault is for the actual touch to the throat.

a little more google and I saw the Wikipedia page on menacing charge, it references new york state as well as colorado laws, ref to other states' "brandishing." I believe that california has or at least had a brandishing charge.
