A man in Denton was recently accused of cursing loudly in the parking lot of a Walmart and pulling his arms away from law enforcement officers when they tried to arrest him. The man was subsequently charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Earlier inside the Walmart, the man had accused a young woman of shoplifting and tried to convince the young lady to go into the back of the store with him. When confronted by law enforcement, the man told the officers that he had been teasing with the young girl. Law enforcement reports that the man would not cooperate and subsequently took him to the Denton City Jail. This case is just one of the many ways in which resisting arrest charges can occur in the state of Texas. If you find yourself facing a resisting arrest charge, you should not hesitate to obtain the assistance of a seasoned criminal defense lawyer.
