NOT GUILTY

AH was charged with resisting arrest and was facing up to a year in jail. The police were called to a auto repair shop regarding a disturbance. The police officer testified my client was causing a disturbance and was asked for his ID and name. My client refused and then the officer attempted to cuff him but my client resisted and they struggled. At one point the officer had restrained my client but my client broke free and left the shop. The officer followed him and they struggled again and the officer pulled out his gun on my client. At that point my client put his hands up and was taken into custody. At the end of the state’s case I made a motion for a directed finding of not guilty and the judge agreed that the officers actions were improper.  Finding of not guilty on all charges.
