Resisting Arrest Without Violence and Disorderly Conduct

Posted in Case Results on February 11th, 2013


Hollywood Police Officers received a dispatch concerning a fight between several black males at a certain location. When the officers arrived, there was nobody at the aforementioned location. The officer discovered two black males down the block who were speaking in a loud tone. The officers approached the two individuals to conduct an investigatory detention. After observing the officers approaching, one of the men ran into a local apartment and refused to exit when requested to do so.

Charges: The defendant was eventually arrested and charged with resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct.

Outcome: Mr. Sobel successfully argued that the officers did not have reasonable suspicion to detain the defendant. As a result of his motion, the State Attorney entered a dismissal on the case.
