(b) A person commits an offense if the person:

- intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.

An offense under Subsection (a)(1) is a Class A misdemeanor, except that the offense is a felony of the third degree if the offense is committed against:
(1) a person the actor knows is a public servant while the public servant is lawfully discharging an official duty, or in retaliation or on account of an exercise of official power or performance of an official duty as a public servant;
You're twisting. There was no intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another in this situation. By his own admission he was uninjured.

So you purposely ignore things? By his own admission she kicked him in the shin. So yes there was a intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another in this situation. Please don't say but its not a serious injury

"Earlier Tuesday, authorities released an affadavit signed by Encinia, in which he describes having “removed” Bland from her car and handcuffed her “for officer safety” after she became “combative.” Encinia says in the affidavit Bland started “swinging her elbows” and kicked him in the shin, at which point he used force to get her to the ground and arrested her for assaulting a public servant after she continued fighting him."

It really doesn't matter if she kicked him or not. Fact is, this young lady lost her life needlessly. I hope cops take more care and people use a healthy fear of police. Tragic

His duck better be in a row because the family filed a wrongful death suit against him. Life as he knows it has taken a dramatic turn and not for the good. He was being a first class prick and for that he is paying the price.

Anyone can file a lawsuit. The family even said they want some money. So no his life has not taken a dramatic turn. You on the other hand are very dramatic.

Interesting that the family that would not bail her out of jail is the same family trying to get money from her death. I see what is really important to them. $$$$$$$$

So you think she is mad and killed herself for police is being offended? Are you serious?

I would rather believe that she was injured during the arrest and died after.
You can not argue the fact that police is rude toward black people rather than white. I mean it is much more likely that the police will show aggression toward the black man during an arrest than white.

Would you agree that a black man being confronted by a police officer is more inclined to resist and be noncompliant than a white man?
