I think that's considered felony assault.
Assault is the *threat* of physical violence.
Battery is the *application* of physical violence.
Usually a person is charged with assault and battery because they both threatened the use of violence, and then also actually physically applied violence.
"Assault with a Deadly Weapon" means the Threat of violence with that weapon, not that one was actually shot, cut, sliced, or otherwise mayhemed.
