Free Attorney Case Review |
Resisting the instructions of an on duty law enforcement officer is pretty much always a bad idea. Some people aren’t born with this knowledge, and have to learn the hard way. No pain, no gain for some.
This week, our lesson is taught by Justin Bieber and the (unofficial) world strongest Grandpa. The lesson leads to this important free legal self help tip:
Resistance of a peace officer during arrest is futile, and dangerous. It is unlikely to result in escape. There are real consequences. Dont make your case and your public image worse than it already is, even if you are completely innocent.
Court case report for Justin Bieber resisting arrest
Even non-violent resistance can lead to additional criminal charges. And a public record of resisting may affect the public’s image of who you are for years to come. Violent resistance can lead to crapping your own pants, and involuntary superman poses.
Non-violent resistance? How does that lead to additional charges? Public image? Superman pose? Who cares?
Results of a Study By Justin Bieber.
Canadian Pop music star Justin Bieber is learning the hardway. This week he was arrested in Miami for driving under the influence of alcohol, street racing, and ended up being charged with “resisting an officer during arrest”.

According to a study by Mr Bieber, published recently by the Miami Hearld and the Miami Beach Police Department. The Bieber study confirmed that even simple angry statements during arrest can have big consequences. In Justin’s study, he tried:
“I ain’t got no F***king weapons! Why do you have to search me!” and
Cuttout from the Police Report of Biebz
“What the F**ck is this about!”
Those words bought Bieber (the man who has everything) an extra alleged violation of Florida statute 843.02, commonly called “resisting an officer without violence.” It is a crime punishable with upto 6 mo. jail time on top of the criminal DUI charges Justin also faces.
Biebz also faces very public ridicule which is currently flooding the airwaves and cyber space. The police report of the Bieber arrest, and the image of his stupid boyish smile and beehive hairdo in the official mug shot will ensure years of celebrity joke material for late night comedians everywhere.
A defense attorney source tells www.TrafficCourtBlog.com that a favorable plea bargain in Justin’s case is made more difficult due to the resisting charge. If he is convicted of the resisting charge, he will be marked in the future to law enforcement as an elevated risk, a trait that can lead to more difficult police encounters in the future.
In the future, the “resister” mark may increase the danger that Bieber gets tazed in public by over zealous police officers.n Biebz is presummed innocent until proven guilty.
A Study by the World’s Strongest Grandpa.
Speaking of Tasers and the effectiveness of resisting a police officer, our next message comes from a person who was, at least for minute, the unofficial world’s strongest Grandpa. He is the subject of an outrageous viral video seen below.
Grandpa points out to us, emphatically, that a person resisting an arrest may also suffer a “crapping of their own pants”, in addition to painful public ridicule and new criminal charges.
What happened to Grandpa?
Grandpa, as we shall nickname him, shows us he learned the “Resistance is Futile” rule the hard way, just like Biebz. He got a little out of control at an Oakland A’s game. He may have been completely innocent before the trouble started. Grandpa tried resistance with violence, and got a more painful result.
One Defense Attorney close to the incident noted in the beginning of the incident, Grandpa seemed to be “peacefully negotiating” with stadium security guards. But when Grandpa discovered he was being ejected from the stadium during a playoff game, he suddenly “became the world’s strongest Grandpa” and attacked police and security personnel.
That is, “strongest” until he was tazed and performed the best “superman pose” we’ve seen on youtube in years. Maybe it was a Jesus pose? Decide for yourself. Whatever, it was artistic for sure.
Another criminal defense attorney very close to the incident and Grandpa, confirmed that from his point of view, Grandpa’s resistance was both stupid and futile form the beginning. Following the tasing, and superman pose, this witness offered the following advice to Grandpa, which has now been heard round the world:
“In your face! In your face!”
That is what you get for ruining a playoff game for other fans around you, Grandpa. Other fans seemed to be thankful for the show.
The public ridicule from the Grandpa study adds insult to injury in a permanent way. It may have even changed the public record on where Grandpa was from. One witness can be heard at the end of the video saying:
“And now we’re in Oakland folks”,
thus forever stamping a mark on Grandpa as a trouble making freakout package from Oakland California, even if he is from Vancouver Canada. He is now and forever the world’s strongest grandpa from Oakland who got tased to many.
Ultimately, this public ridicule and stigma may be the worst consequence of Grandpa’s study on futile resistance to arrest – and frankly may become unjust as the years go by.
So there it is. Take it for what it is worth. Two studies on the effectiveness of resisting arrest that show it is both futile, and a pathway to future trouble and ridicule.
Try and avoid it if you can. Remember there are video camera everywhere now, and youtube is free.
