Felony Criminal Defense in Phoenix, Arizona
In the state of Arizona, unlawful flight can be charged when a driver attempts to flee from a police officer who is pursuing the vehicle. This is true whether the police officer was attempting to pull over a vehicle on suspicion of a serious crime or for a simple broken taillight. In many cases, people who are charged with unlawful flight were not trying to flee the police. In fact, many charges of unlawful flight occur simply because the driver did not pull over fast enough for the liking of the individual officer.

Defend Charges of Unlawful Flight
In many alleged cases of unlawful fight, the accused driver had no willful intent to elude the police. There are many reasons why a person would not immediately pull over for the police. A driver may have loud music on, or may be confused about whether the police are trying to pull over their vehicle or another vehicle on the road. Unfortunately, police officers do not always see it this way and will add fleeing charges even when there was no intent to avoid police.
