It is very common for college students to be charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, or worst resisting arrest. When alcohol is involved, students often don’t make the best decisions. As a result, when police cannot get a student to follow commands that student is often charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, or resisting arrest.
In the event that the police decide to arrest a student, if the student continues to refuse to cooperate, the student could be facing a resisting arrest charge. Resisting arrest charges does not look good on a student’s criminal record. It may be difficult for that student to find employment different fields including law enforcement.
The best thing to do when approached by police officers is to be polite and to follow their instructions. If you don’t follow their instructions, you may find yourself charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, or resisting arrest. Finally, if you have pending criminal charges contact a lawyer as soon as you can.
