A 25-year-old man has been convicted of resisting and obstructing police after he physically resisted commands of two Michigan State Police troopers.

Jabril Ahmed Muhammed was found guilty in Genesee County Circuit Court on Wednesday morning.

According to testimony, two Michigan State Police troopers observed Muhammed cross the middle of Clio Road near Myrtle Street in the City of Flint which caused vehicles to slam on their breaks to avoid striking Muhammed. When the troopers approached Muhammed to question him, he continued to walk away and became very agitated when directed to stop. A trooper then grabbed Muhammed’s wrist at which point he began to physically resist and pull away. One of the trooper’s took Muhammed to the ground where he continued to resist while refusing to put his hands behind his back. The troopers were able to gain control of Muhammed, handcuff him, and arrest him for resisting and obstructing orders from police.

Resisting and obstructing carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison. Muhammed is scheduled to be sentenced on August 2, 2013.
