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.

  • Excellent Attorney

    “I received a speeding ticket on 95 in Baltimore recently, and I retained Mark Scheuerman to represent me in Maryland court. Mark was thorough and professional during the entire process, and secured a favorable judgement on my behalf. I highly recommend Mark and also highly recommend retaining the services of an attorney if you have been issued a speeding ticket in the State of Maryland.”

  • Mark is the man!

    “Mark took care of all the heavy lifting of my speeding ticket. While going to school in Maryland, I attained a speeding ticket in a school zone. Soon after I moved back to my home state of New York, and lost the ticket during the move. Soon enough I was notified my license was going to be suspended in the state of New York as well as Maryland. Mark took care of the issue over the phone with me , went to court for me against a tough judge and the police officer had shown up. Mark got it to a probation before judgement and I actually got a refund on the fine I paid to the court! Mark is the man! If I ever have another traffic issue in the state of MD. (fingers crossed), Mark will be my first phone call!”

  • Highly recommend!

    “Mark was a great fit for me, as a lawyer. Right from the beginning I felt comfortable with him and he felt confident we could win my case. Mark kept in touch and always returned my calls and emails quickly. He came fully prepared to court and ready for trial, my case was dismissed and my record cleared. I would definitely recommend him for anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. Thank you!”
