Getting arrested is one of those situations nobody wants to be in. Still, it’s important to remember that resisting arrest is never the answer. As someone who’s never been arrested (knock on wood), I can’t imagine being handcuffed and taken into custody. It just seems so terrifying to even think about!
But I do know that resisting arrest can lead to even more trouble. In addition to the original charges, you could face additional charges for resisting or obstructing law enforcement. The punishments for these charges can vary depending on the severity of the situation. Still, it’s never worth it to escalate the situation.
