I recently saw a video that shows several people destroying a statue in a public space. In the process of tearing it down, the bulk of the statue fell and struck a bystander in the head. It's clear that the injury was accidental, but the property damage was clearly deliberate.
Similar to felony murder (whereby additional charges can be brought against someone who has committed certain felonies that caused a death), are there laws that would add some sort of "felony assault" in addition to a charge of vandalism? Alternatively, are personal injuries simply relegated to civil court, where the victim sues the person responsible for the injury?
If local law makes a difference, I believe this was in Portsmouth, Virginia.
