Myth or Fact: Is there a “Mike Tyson Rule” in Ohio? (Part 2)

The following blogpost is the continuation of our two-part examination of whether Ohio law requires trained fighters to “register” certain body parts as “deadly weapons”.  We left off last week discussing the various sections under the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) in which a person engaged in a fistfight (that does not result in death) may be prosecuted.  Disorderly Conduct and simple Assault are the most common charges that are issued.

For more serious situations, a person may be charged with Felonious Assault or Aggravated Assault.
