I've had it with these mother-fscking slaps on this mother-fscking plane: Flight fight sparks legal brouhaha over mid-air co-ords

another wrinkle

So, me and the Mrs and youngin are traveling cross country. We stop in a gas station, the youngin spills his water on some woman while exiting the convenience store, she yells at the youngin, and the Mrs steps in, the woman slaps the Mrs. Nobody lives in that state, who has jurisdiction? What if the Mrs and the woman both jumped in the air at the same time, and the Mrs was slapped, who has jurisdiction?

I don't think it matters, assault is pretty much against the law across all 50 states? No?
