Penalties for Intoxication Assault
According to Texas Penal Code Section 49.07, a person is guilty of intoxication assault when they cause serious bodily injury to another individual as a result of intoxication. Serious bodily injury is defined by Texas law as any personal injury which causes a protracted impairment or loss of the function of any organ or bodily member, or creates a significant risk of fatality.
