Homer has a stash of Butterfinger bars hidden away in a drawer. One day, Bart finds the candy bars, takes them out to the backyard and begins to eat them. Homer catches Bart eating his candy bars and begins to throw rocks at Bart in order to scare him away. Bart sees the rock coming at him and dives out of the way. Unfortunately, as Homer is throwing his rock, Marge comes outside to tell Homer that dinner is ready. The rock that was meant for Bart, hits Marge in the head, leaving her with a concussion. Homer will be liable for:
Choice 1 Nothing, because he missed Bart and didn’t mean to hit Marge
Choice 2 A battery against Marge
Choice 3 An assault against Bart
Choice 4 Both an assault against Bart and a battery against Marge
