Misdemeanor Resisting Arrest

Resisting arrest occurs when one uses or threatens to use physical force or violence or any other means that can cause harm to a peace officer or prevents or attempts to prevent the making of an arrest.  Although often closely related to cases involving obstructing a peace officer, the two are distinct and different offenses. 

Resisting arrest is a Class 2 misdemeanor.
