Pardalis & Nohavicka Criminal Law Update: Interfering with Police Activity is Obstruction of Justice
This week’s case brings us to Brooklyn, 10:15 p.m.:
An officer was issuing a summons to someone when Damien came over and said, “don’t give them your name.” Damien then stepped between that person and the officer, pulled out his phone and recorded the officer’s face and shield. Then Damien slapped the officer’s raised hand down and refused to produce identification when asked to do so. A large crowd gathered around the officer, and also caused the officer to become annoyed. Damien was charged and arrested for obstruction of justice, and a few other things. Damien’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss.
