    It's precisely because non of those things were actually happening which makes the EMT's actions wrong.

    I'm believing this story less and less as it goes on.
    Well, maybe if he'd said that to the EMT himself, that would have made a bit more sense.

    Obviously the guy was paraphrasing, you're over exaggerating the what this guy said. The EMT did resist arrest, and I've told people in the past that I've had to fight with that that was a good way to get killed. And it is. When you fight a cop there is always a gun involved. It's plausible the cop told the EMT's partner "hey he's lucky, I could have shot him for resisting arrest." If you know anything about the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, you'd not be surprised at all by this. In Oklahoma they still shoot at you for fleeing from a traffic stop, I know, I had shotgun pellets hit my windshield at the state line about six years ago. They're attitude about lethal force is very cavalier. It's the wild west in that state and that's not a joke.

    It has nothing to do with being a pdf. The issue is it is an image embedded in the document. I could do the same page with a basic html page, word doc, etc, etc.

    It is entirely possible Officer Martin committed a felony in obstructing an EMT during the discharge of his duties as well.

    You know that's a good point, but I doubt it would stick. The good faith argument will arise in that the trooper was executing his own duty in addressing what he is claiming was a violation of the law. Further, I hate to say this because of the way this trooper acted, if you are told you are under arrest...you are under arrest. At that point the officer did have probable cause to arrest (even if his charge was petty and it would never stick in court) and the EMT did resist.

    He really is lucky he's not in jail. Thank god the D.A. smelled this one and advised not to arrest.

    I am not getting the failure to yield. He did get out of his way. Is slipping someone "the bird" even if it did happen against the law?
    Thank you
