Criminal Charges of Fleeing a Police Officer
The Consequences of ‘Fleeing the Police’
The criminal charge of fleeing a police officer is often added on to other criminal charges. For example, a driver who fails to immediately respond to a police officer’s signal to pull over may be charged with fleeing the police. Or, a person who runs from a house where the police have noticed suspicious activity may be charged with fleeing the police.
Automatic Driver’s License Revocation
Even if the charge seems ridiculous given the specific circumstances, a criminal charge of fleeing the police carries serious and immediate consequences. Following an arrest for failing to respond or fleeing the police in a vehicle, your driver’s license will be automatically revoked for a period of one year.
