In Texas, there are just some things that others have done that will cause a change in laws. We've discussed in the past about something called "Mutual Combat" in Texas, where two individuals can agree to fight. But today we'll discuss something a little bit more disgusting.

Anger sometimes makes us do some things that will absolutely wish we didn't do. One of those things individuals could potentially do? Well, spitting on someone is one thing that might potentially happen.

Now, for the record, spitting on someone is not condoned by anyone here. Realistically, we'd hope you wouldn't resort to doing that action to anyone. But, there is a question that must be answering if you do this action:

How Much Trouble Would You Get In If You Choose To Spit On Someone?

To find the answer, we simply must take a look at Sec. 22.01 of Texas Law regarding assault:

- intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another, including the person’s spouse;
- intentionally or knowingly threatens another with imminent bodily injury, including the person’s spouse; or
- intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.

While spitting doesn't fit the first two mentioned, it certainly fits the third one mentioned. So what is the punishment for spitting on someone in Texas? Well, according to CW33, you can find yourself paying a fine, which could reach the amount of $500.

So, in short, don't spit on someone!

Speaking Of Weird In Texas...

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!
