Arrest for obstructing justice and resisting arrest
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
Well It just so happened that over the Halloween weekend while in Madison Wisconsin, I got arrested. I had one of the original charges dropped to a city ordinance violation instead of a criminal offense. I played 223 dollars for that and entered into a guilty plea. I still have 2 other charges. Obstructing justice an officer, and resisting arrest. I had thrown an empty water bottle at a line of police officers in riot gear, due to being heavily intoxicated. The line of officers eventually rushed all the people standing around. I took 2 steps to get out of the way, and was tackled and arrested. I'm wondering if its even worth my time to bring a lawyer to court with me, or should I just pay the fines and be done with it?
