Is my boss legally required to call police on me for throwing a mug?

My boss said he has to call the police because I threw a mug at the wall this morning. It didn't hit anyone. It was wrong, but I didn't hurt anyone. Why is he legally required to do that? Is that a lie? How is that assault or anything? No one was even standing close to the wall.

    He might be required by insurance (which could make him technically correct as contracts have the force of law), or by his boss, but not by state law.

    No, the boss is not required to call police. What you describe is not an assault.

    He may be required to report an incident at work due to company policy or he could be liable if you get mad and hurt someone at work in the future for not calling the police earlier.

    Some people are mandatory reporters. Most people are not. Since I don't know what your boss' status is, I can't say whether he is required to report. The appropriate charge based on your recitation of facts is malicious mischief or disorderly conduct.
