Assault and battery

FILE - In this Dec. 11, 2015 file photo an image of Mario Woods, who was fatally shot by police, is shown on a monitor at a news conference at Southeast Community College in San Francisco. A federal judge says video of the racially charged fatal San Francisco police shooting "casts doubt" on officers' accounts that Woods, a 26-year-old black man, was moving quickly toward them when they shot. The judge cited the videos Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018, when he refused to toss out a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the victim's family against the officers. Five officers shot Woods a combined 21 times in December 2015. The shooting sparked weeks of protest over the department's treatment of minorities. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)
