A: It all depends on the officer handling it.

Q. My 16 year old was charged with 3rd degree assault. No priors she is a good kid. What do I need to do??
A: This is a serious felony offense. The best thing you can do for your daughter is help her retain an attorney. An attorney will be able to ensure her rights are protected and may even be able to keep this from resulting in a conviction.
Q. if i was woke up to my girlfriend yelling and throwing stuff
A: The smart move would be to get a lawyer retained. Crimes of domestic violence require an arrest, but a lawyer may be able to help make that process easier. In addition, crimes of domestic violence carry many collateral consequences you will want to try to avoid.
