Why Has Will Smith Not Been Arrested After Committing Assault and Battery on Live Television?

UPDATE(10:51pm): Hollywood Hits Bottom – As Cassandra Fairbanks reported earlier — Will Smith rushed the Oscar stage and decked comedian Chris Rock in the face for making a joke about his wife.

Smith then went back and sat down and screamed profanities at Rock on the stage. That was uncomfortable.

Here’s the video again.

This was an assault caught on national TV.

Will Smith later won the Oscar for best actor.
WTH?

He was still in the audience after his assault on national TV.

So why was he not charged for assault?

Why was he allowed to sit in the front row during the show?

Why was he given an award after assaulting the host on stage?

Smith committed assault and battery on live TV.

California Penal Code Section 242 PC: Battery
1. Definition and Elements of the Crime

Battery under California Penal Code Section 242 PC is a frequently-filed criminal offense that involves any intentional and unlawful physical contact on another person. Battery is often discussed in connection with the offense of assault under California Penal Code Section 240 PC, however these are two separate crimes composed of their own individual elements.

To prove a charge of battery, a prosecutor must be able to establish the following elements:

The defendant intentionally and unlawfully touched another person in a harmful or offensive manner.
AND the defendant did not act in self defense, in defense of someone else, or while reasonably disciplining a child.
The slightest touch can be enough to satisfy the battery statute, if it is done in a rude or angry manner. Making any contact with a person, even if it is just through his or her clothing, is also enough to violate the statute. The touch in question does not have to cause pain or injury. In addition, the physical contact can be made on something closely connected to a person. For example, if a person is holding an object or riding a bicycle and another person strikes the object or the bicycle, that person could be charged with battery in both incidents because of the close connection between the physical object and the other person.

Thanks to Democrats it’s OK to smack people in the face now.

WATCH: Will Smith Wins Best Actor Award and Cries After Slapping Chris Rock On Oscar Stage

UPDATE(10:37pm): Smith won the oscar for best actor after the assault and was allowed to take the stage to accept the award.

Will Smith won the Best Actor award after he rushed the Oscar stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock in the face for making a joke about his wife.

Smith was not removed from the venue for assaulting the comedian and took to the stage to accept his award not long after.

“I want to be an ambassador of that kind of love and care. I want to apologize to the Academy, I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award,” Smith said through tears. “It’s not about winning an award for me, it’s about being able to shine a lot on all the people … and the entire cast and crew of King Richard and Venus and Serena and the entire Williams family. Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams! But, love will make you do crazy things.”

Smith apologized to the Academy and fellow nominees, but did not apologize to Rock.

The actress had shaved her head to deal with her alopecia, which causes hair loss and Rock made a joke about her looking like she was getting ready for G.I. Jane 2.

WATCH: Will Smith Rushes Oscar Stage And Socks Chris Rock In The Face For Insulting His Wife

Will Smith rushed the Oscar stage and decked comedian Chris Rock in the face for making a joke about his wife being in “G.I. Jane 2” because of her haircut.

The actress had shaved her head to deal with her alopecia, which causes hair loss.

Rock cracked the joke and had started to move on as Smith approached the stage and slapped him dead in the face.

Rock, stunned, attempted to shake it off and keep going as Smith shouted at him from back in the audience.

The outburst from the audience was not censored in Australia, with the Fresh Prince of Bel Aire actor shouting keep my wife’s name out of your f-cking mouth!”

“Wow dude, it was a G.I. Jane joke,” Rock responded, adding “that was the greatest night in the history of television.”

During the commercial break, Smith was pulled aside by Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry who appeared to be telling him to brush it off. Smith appeared to wipe away tears while returning to his seat with Jada and his PR rep.

It was not immediately clear if the actor was removed from the award’s ceremony following the outburst.

This is a developing story and Gateway Pundit will update as more information becomes available.

UPDATE: This article originally said that he punched him, but it appears to have been a slap.
