Events can spin out of control when citizens and the police interact. In some cases, what might have been a ticket — for public intoxication, disorderly conduct or another such charge — becomes a major offense because the officer decides you are interfering with performance of his or her duty. It is important to recognize that this charge can be filed and successfully prosecuted even if there was no physical assault or contact.
