Understanding Resisting Arrest Charges
Fleeing a police officer or resisting arrest can quickly turn a bad situation into a worse situation. Not only does this make law enforcement officers unhappier, but they can now bring an additional resisting arrest charge against you, on top of the crime they already suspect you have committed. This only makes potential sentencing that much worse.
These charges can take several forms, including:
- Fleeing the scene of a crime after law enforcement has arrived
- Continuing to run or flee after police tell you to stop, whether on foot or by car
- Trying to escape after police have you in handcuffs or in the police car
- Getting in the way of another person’s arrest
