When someone is charged with resisting arrest, the charge is usually bundled with something else. Many times, the charge arises from the individual's genuine surprise at being arrested. This kind of arrest can happen to anybody. It is a natural reaction for many people to protest or resist arrest when they believe the arrest is a mistake or unlawful.
You can be charged with resisting for a number of reasons, including:
- Pulling away from being handcuffed
- Touching the arresting officer
- Hiding or running
- Arguing too long or too vehemently
