    sentence structure

    He has been charged with assaulting a police officer.

    what is "assaulting" playing a role in above sentence?

    Is that a verb continuing in the past?

    can you analyze the sentence above?

    Re: sentence structure

    It's a gerund because it comes after a preposition.
