What is Resisting Arrest?
In the State of Maryland, the crime of resisting arrest is known as “hindering or interfering with arrest,” and it is a misdemeanor offense. Under Maryland law, hindering or interfering with an arrest occurs when an individual intentionally obstructs, hinders, or interferes with a law enforcement officer who is making an arrest, or attempts to make an arrest. This can include physical resistance, as well as non-physical interference such as providing false information or refusing to comply with an officer’s lawful orders.
