Is resisting arrest a felony?
Resisting an arrest may or may not be a felony. It depends on the facts of the case. In AL, resisting or interfering with an arrest for an offense that is a felony, is a class D felony. Resisting an arrest, detention or stop by fleeing in such a way that the person fleeing creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury or death to any person, is also a class D felony. Otherwise, resisting or interfering with an arrest, detention or stop is a class A misdemeanor.
Either way it is a criminal charge. At this point an attorney should be consulted.
