An assault with a deadly weapon occurs when an attacker accompanies a physical attack with a physical object capable of inflicting serious bodily injury or death, by virtue of its design or construction. Because the use of a dangerous object creates a risk of such serious consequences, all states classify assault with a deadly weapon as a felony. (Judges and lawyers often refer to the crime as “ADW.”) Since Trayvon assaulted Zimmerman then assault with a deadly weapon could only be charged to Trayvon if he had a weapon. Zimmerman did not assault Trayvon he only drew his weapon after being assaulted!!!
