Can a F1 student get deported for threat of assault?

Asked 12 months ago - Dallas, TX

I recently got assault by threat class c misdemeanor citation in texas. Can the US government deport me for this reason. I did not threaten anyone but I had a baseball bat in my hands and was in an argument. The person who called the cops was a us citizen and the police officer gave me citation for threat.
