Delaware Law on Resisting Arrest

Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, resisting arrest can be either a misdemeanor or a felony. Typically, if you run away from the police officer who is attempting to arrest you, that is a misdemeanor. If, however, you use force against the police officer, that could lead to felony charges. That is the case even if the officer is uninjured.

We will examine the facts of your arrest, including police reports, eyewitness statements, and video evidence, if available, to determine the appropriate course of action. Our job is to build a defense to the entire case, including any resisting arrest charges, and minimize the punishment that you may face.
