Client Fleeing from Police (Resisting Arrest) Offered Misdemeanor Reduction

CHARGE

Resisting Arrest

RESULT

Dismissal

Resisting arrest does not have to just be actual physical resistance with the officer. These cases are charged all the time when all the defendant has done is run away from the officer. Here, I had a client who ran away from an officer after the officer tried to stop him because he didn't use the crosswalk. Come on! My client fled on foot, caught a bus, and almost got away. Except, the officer quickly got into his car, followed the bus, boarded it, and arrested my client who was sitting in the back of the bus. The end result here was that my client was offered a misdemeanor disturbing the peace by loud and unreasonable noise (Penal Code section 415(2)) and no jail time.
