Battery on a law enforcement officer (also known as battery on a LEO) is an extremely common felony charge that police officers often use to demonstrate their authority and/or gain control over a situation. Many people arrested for battery on a law enforcement officer feel that they have done nothing wrong and have difficulty understanding why they were arrested, let alone charged with assaulting an officer. In fact, the person arrested is usually the one who suffers physical injury at the hands of the officers. Consequently, somebody facing this charge often feels both physically and emotionally violated.
Battery on a LEO can be charged alone, but is often accompanied by the charge of resisting an officer with violence. If there is an allegation which makes out the elements of battery on a LEO, then resisting an officer with violence can also be charged. The reverse, however, is not necessarily the case. Someone can resist an officer with violence without striking the officer (i.e., committing a battery).
