What Constitutes Resisting Arrest?
Fleeing – fleeing occurs when a police officer attempts to stop you and you refuse. It often happens in the car and usually occurs after you have committed a driving offense, such as speeding or reckless driving. Resisting arrest without violence can also occur on foot. You may try to outrun a police officer or you may try to hide from him. Again, this can be seen as a direct attempt to resist arrest but it could also be seen as a misunderstanding.
