Other light threats


1. By threatening another with a weapon, or by drawing a weapon in a quarrel, unless it be in lawful self-defense.
2. By orally threatening another, in the heat of anger, with some harm constituting a crime, without persisting in the idea involved in the threat.
3. By orally threatening another with harm not constituting a felony.

No demand for money or condition involved.

Threat is not deliberate.

Under the first type, the subsequent  acts of the offender must show that he did not persist in the idea involved in the threat.

If the threats are directed to a person  who is absent and uttered in a temporary fit of anger, the offense is  only other light threats.

Threats which are ordinarily grave  threats, if made in the heat of anger, may be other light threats.
