In 2011, it was estimated that one in 25 people in America were arrested. Most people who are arrested managed to be taken into custody without any problems. However, some people, like the woman in the aforementioned, strike an officer while they were being arrested.
People should never strike an officer. However, some people become aggravated while they are being arrested. That is why they may strike an officer. People who have been charged with assaulting an officer can fight their charges by calling a Miami battery of officer attorney.
Resisting arrest is also a crime. Anytime that a person uses physical force in order to avoid being arrested this can be classified as resisting arrest. If you have been charged with resisting arrest, then you will need a Miami resisting arrest attorney.
