Resisting arrest is a criminal act. What does it mean to resist an arrest? According to California Penal Code 148, it is knowingly impeding, resisting, or hindering any police officer from performing his or her duties. Whether this obstruction is done with physical means such as taking their weapon or simply by refusing to follow an officer’s directions, you can be charged with resisting arrest.
