  • Do you have the right to use force in an illegal arrest by a police officer?  This question frequently comes into play in charges that stem from either obstructing a police officer or resisting arrest.  In the state of Nevada, by common law you have a right to resist an illegal arrest.  However, the practical matter is you should try and assert those types of rights in a court of law. Unfortunately, many times, an officer may use excessive force.  But resisting an individual as a police officer or even as a security officer can result in serious bodily harm.  Officers believe that they have the right to use what forces necessary and what forces are dictated by the actions
