Depends on your state, and no, not all felonies. What did you do?

Battery- Intentional unlawful touching of a person against his or her will

Assault- threat by word or act with the aparent ability to carry it out

Agg Assault- the above with the ability to cause permenent injury, disfigurement or death

In my state an assault is trying to strike someone. battery is sucessfully striking someone. They are misdemeanors.

Felonies would be CPC 273.5 Domestic violence with injuries or CPC 245 ADW.
