Resisting Arrest

Criminal Defense Attorney: DUI, felony, robbery, assault, expungement, domestic disturbance, traffic citation, weapon possession, burglary, drug possession.

What happens if I resist arrest by Law Enforcement?

It is never a good idea, and always a bad idea to attempt to flee or resist the efforts of law enforcement officers. Pushing, shoving, kicking, spitting, grabbing are often charged as resisting or obstruction. If possible, and your personal dignity allows it, it's always best to obey a lawful command by a known law enforcement officer.

As 20 plus year experienced criminal defense attorney, I can attest to the fact that is make a defense extremely difficult. EVEN IF you are not guilty of the charge, but you resist or flee THAT alone is a crime. Not only will you lose in the physical confrontation, but you will probably also lose in court. Just don’t do it.
