Did You Resist Arrest Non-Violently or Violently?
There are two resisting arrest charges: resisting arrest without violence and resisting arrest with violence. Charges of resisting arrest without violence may have been filed against you because you ran away from the police or attempted to hide. Charges of resisting arrest with violence are typically filed because you allegedly used violence in your attempt to evade arrest. If you are accused of attacking a police officer in the process of resisting, you may also be charged with assault or battery on a law enforcement officer.
Defense Against Resisting Arrest and All Related Charges
In order to be charged with resisting arrest, the police usually have attempted to arrest you for something. You may have also been charged with a:
- Drug offense
- Theft, burglary or fraud charge
- Sex crime
- Domestic violence
In DWI/DUI and traffic violations there is a similar offense, called fleeing and eluding. Our criminal defense lawyers can also defend against this charge.
