Resisting an Officer Without Violence Archives

Resisting an Officer Without Violence

Resisting an officer sounds confrontational by nature, but is it really? In the state of Florida, if you resist an officer without violence you will be arrested on the spot. It's considered a non-violent obstruction of the law, since you are getting in the way of execution of that officer's legal duty. That could mean interfering with an officer's arrest of your friend. If that still doesn't sound like a big deal to you, maybe this will: Resisting Without Violence is a first degree misdemeanor, that can carry up to one year in prison, or a full year of probation and a $1,000 fine.
