Type of case/charge(s): Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Without Violence, Trespass After Warning
Summary: Client was part of a group of people at a local bar. A bouncer decided to eject a person from the group for being too intoxicated. Our client allegedly became confrontational and combative – ultimately leading to a confrontation with law enforcement. Our client was accused of using both hands to forcefully push a law enforcement officer, refusing to leave and resisting officers during the arrest. Longwell Lawyers got involved and thoroughly investigated the case, including getting subpoenas which were served on third parties to obtain all of the video evidence. Through that process, it was established that our client had not done anything wrong and never pushed an officer. Instead it was obvious that the bouncer was overly aggressive and combative with our client, and created an unnecessarily hostile and confrontational situation. Longwell Lawyers prepared the case for trial by taking depositions and filing pre-trial motions – which ultimately caused the State to drop the case.
Result: All charges dropped
