How Did You Resist Arrest?

People are often surprised at how easily they can be charged with resisting arrest, sometimes referred to as obstruction. The charge is very loosely defined. For this reason, it is frequently considered one of the most overcharged crimes in Maryland.

Any action that interferes with you or someone else being arrested can lead to charges of resisting. While running from a police officer and attempting to hide can be defined as resisting arrest, so can simply standing between a police officer and the person he or she is trying to put into handcuffs. Matters are made even worse if you are accused of pushing or making any physical contact with a law enforcement officer, which can lead to assault charges.

Whatever you are accused of, you can be confident in our ability to defend you. Our attorneys will investigate the charges carefully. Was an arrest even warranted? Was there probable cause? We will attack the charge of resisting arrest, as well as core criminal charge. We will do everything possible to protect your rights and your freedom.
