You weren't assaulted, you were bothered by a drunk guy. I'm assuming that you're going to sue him for pain and suffering. If you hang out downtown, you're going to get approached by people that you deem unsavory. I'm sorry you got touched, but you weren't assaulted. Very different things.

if another touches you , then you are assaulted. You are not so smart.
