Hundley v. State

In Hundley v. State, 22 Ark. App. 239, 738 S.W.2d 107 (1987), the Court upheld a battery conviction where the victim, a police officer, was stabbed completely through the shoulder with a three-inch knife and testified afterward that he felt faint, experienced chest pains and difficulty in breathing. The Court held that these symptoms, in addition to evidencing substantial pain, showed the "temporary impairment of physical condition." 22 Ark. App. at 243, 738 S.W.2d at 110.
