Resisting Arrest Attorney in Baltimore County, Maryland

Charged with Resisting Arrest or Hindering Arrest in Baltimore County, Maryland?

Have you been charged with resisting arrest, hindering arrest, or interfering with an arrest in Baltimore County, Maryland? You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and fight these serious charges.

Under Maryland law, the crime of resisting arrest is technically called “hindering or interfering with arrest.” This misdemeanor offense occurs when someone intentionally obstructs, hinders, or interferes with a police officer who is making or attempting to make an arrest.

Resisting arrest charges can stem from:

  • Physical resistance against the arresting officer
  • Fleeing or attempting to flee from the arrest
  • Providing false information to the officer
  • Refusing to follow the officer’s lawful orders

Even if you believe the arrest was unjustified, resisting can lead to additional criminal charges on top of the original reason for the arrest. A conviction for resisting arrest in Maryland can result in up to 3 years in jail and thousands of dollars in fines.
