According to NRS 200.471, assault is

"Unlawfully attempting to use physical force against another person or intentionally placing another person in reasonable apprehension of immediate bodily harm."

If the assault was not against an employee of the state or government and there was no use of a deadly weapon, it will be charged as a misdemeanor. The penalties for assault with a deadly weapon or against a government employee includes: one to six years in state prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

It is important to remember that there is a difference between assault and battery. Battery is defined as the "willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another." So assault is the threat of violence and battery is the actual carrying out of these threats.
