Can husband be arrested for verbal abuse?

Las Vegas, NV |

I have three videos of my husband verbally abusing me in front of our child. In one he even tells our daughter that he will crush me. This abuse has been going on for years. Is this enough evidence for a conviction? I live in Las Vegas, NV.

Yes verbal abuse is defined as domestic violence if it creates fear.

Why haven't you filed for divorce? Why haven't you obtained a protective order? Until you take action to help yourself, the Court cannot help. Verbal abuse in and of itself is not criminal.
