Resisting Arrest

Baltimore Defense Attorneys for Resisting Arrest Charges

If you put up a fight at the time of your arrest, and officers had a difficult time getting you into their vehicle, you could be charged with a misdemeanor offense for resisting arrest. Other factors can also be an arrest resistance, but the punishment is the same: You could face up to 3 years in jail and a fine of $5,000.

Were you charged with resisting arrest? Call our office today at (410) 630-4274.

In Baltimore, to be charged with resisting arrest, you must refuse to submit to the arrest by some type of force.

This includes:

  • Refusing to be cuffed
  • Refusing to get in the patrol vehicle
  • Arguing with the arresting officer
  • Putting up a fight of any kind

If there were multiple officers at the scene, you cannot be charged with resisting arrest from each individual officer.

If you are a third party and interfere when someone is being arrested, you could get arrested yourself and charged with resisting arrest. A police officer can also not charge you with resisting arrest if you flee the scene; doing so Is a violation of a different set of laws. If you attempted to flee the scene or did so successfully, The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC can work to get the charge dropped.

To prove the charge, the arresting officer must show beyond doubt that:

  • An officer arrested, or attempted to arrest, you;
  • The arrest was lawful; and
  • You refused arrest with some type of force.
