UPSHAW v. THE STATE.
56057.
SMITH, Judge.
Aggravated assault. Clarke Superior Court. Before Judge Gaines.
Upshaw appeals from his conviction of aggravated assault and from the overruling of his motion for new trial. We affirm.
1. Appellant did not make timely objection to the trial court's alleged intimation of opinion, and his first enumeration of error is therefore meritless. Pulliam v. State, 196 Ga. 782 (6, 7) (28 SE2d 139) (1943).
2. The trial court charged verbatim appellant's requested charge on the defense of justification, the request being a quote of Code 26-902 (a). Also, following the charge and in response to the court's inquiry as to objections to the charge, appellant's counsel stated he agreed therewith. Hence appellant will not be heard to complain that the court committed error in omitting the unrequested instruction on the definition of "forcible felony," a term used in Code 26-902 (a), as appellant induced the alleged error. White v. State, 146 Ga. App. 810 (4) (1978). See also Cantrell v. State, 141 Ga. 98 (5) (80 SE 649) (1913) and Pickens v. State, 132 Ga. 46 (63 SE 783) (1908).
3. The evidence authorized the verdict.
Harry N. Gordon, District Attorney, B. Thomas Cook, Jr., Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
C. P. Brackett, Jr., for appellant.
SUBMITTED JUNE 6, 1978 -- DECIDED JULY 13, 1978 -- REHEARING DENIED JULY 31, 1978.
