Type: Class A misdemeanor and Class B misdemeanors
Facts: The brother, sister, and mother were all our clients. The brother got into an argument with his roommate, and while in the process of moving out, a dispute developed between the roommates. The other roommate called the police, who responded to the scene. The officer arrested the brother, who did not concede to the officer’s authority to the officer’s satisfaction. The sister and mother attempted to stop the officer from arresting the brother. The three charges were, in our opinion, an overreaction by the officer. All three cases were dismissed by the prosecutor.
