Attack on cop only misdemeanor?

I wish to thank Gil Sakima, the retired mail carrier, for stepping in and helping police officer Romel Cuellar. When reading what the perpetrator was charged with in regard to an assault on our officer, I was quite surprised. The assault was only considered a misdemeanor? Wow! One person can cause an officer a sprained wrist, scrapes and bruises and receive a misdemeanor? If someone did that to me, is that all the penalty would be?
