Obstructing a Peace Officer

Obstructing a peace officer occurs when a peace officer, firefighter, emergency medical services provider, rescue specialist or volunteer is prevented from or is interfered with during the performance of lawful duties. Obstruction can involve the use or threatened use of physical force, interference, or other acts.  Although often related to cases involving resisting arrest, the two are distinct and separate offenses. 

Obstructing a peace officer is a Class 2 misdemeanor.
