Domestic violence offenses include any verbal threat to commit physical harm, physical force or violence against family members, spouses, domestic partners or significant others in a way that injures or threatens the injury of another person. Behaviors considered gestures of domestic violence can be hitting, grabbing, choking and throwing things. Even such acts as excessive texting, phone calls, stalking and destruction of property can subject you to a domestic violence offense.
