§ 940.19(1), Battery – causing bodily harm, splashed with urine.

State v. Charles Dante Higgs, 230 Wis.2d 1, 601 N.W.2d 653 (Ct. App. 1999)
For Higgs: Joseph E. Redding

Issue: Whether splashing the victim’s face with urine satisfies the battery element of bodily harm.

Holding: The mere fact that urine struck the victim’s face isn’t enough to establish bodily harm, but the victim’s testimony that he felt stinging and burning satisfied the element.
