Domestic violence situations are often much more complex than what the police are ready to deal with at that time. They simply find the aggressor and take them to jail for the courts to figure out.

Charged with Domestic Violence in Las Vegas
Nevada Domestic Violence laws are strict and unforgiving. To be convicted for domestic violence only requires two elements:
- Battery or assault; and,
- Domestic relationship (spouse, brother, sister, mother, etc.)
What makes it worse is that a battery in Nevada is simply offensive touching! This means that throwing water, moving an angry spouse out of the way, or even a food fight could result in a domestic violence conviction on your record, resulting in a loss of your right to bear arms and a conviction on your record for seven years. A second conviction results in stiffer penalties, and a third is a felony with mandatory prison time. That's right. You could potentially spend up to five years in prison for a food fight.
