Reckless Endangerment

The Washington State Legislature has enacted what could be considered a “catch-all” crime for reckless behavior that does actually result in injuries, and does not rise to the level of assault. Reckless Endangerment is a gross misdemeanor, meaning it is punishable by up to 365 days in jail and $5000 in fines.
The Reckless Endangerment statute (RCW 9A.36.050) make it a crime to recklessly engage in conduct (not amounting to drive-by shooting) that creates a substantial risk of death or serious physical injury to another person.
Situations supporting a reckless endangerment conviction have included firing a BB gun at a target held by an infant and driving extremely fast while not paying attention.
