Today, my boyfriend, who is rather large, picked me up to give me a hug, and some over-eager security guard actually pointed his tazer at him and told him to put me down. So he put me down and tried to ask what he'd done wrong. The bastard tazed him for acting aggressively. FML

Because this comes up a lot: In general, we have assault (a credible threat to or attempt to cause harm through unwanted contact) and battery (actually causing harm through unwanted contact).

However, the actual statutes vary in definition and name for every country, state, province, prefect, county, and city that addresses them. In some places assault is a blanket term and covers both. In some places verbal battery is a thing.

So you're probably both right, but only locally.

He may not get a "next time" since he now could probably be charged with assault and battery

Cads' sarcasm is so advanced he gets downvoted hardcore.

On a serious note: OP should press charges. Police brutality is becoming more evident and it's getting out of control.
