I've never understood "resisting arrest" charges, especially when there's no other charges to originate the arrest.

/He got a DWB
//Generally a $500 fine and overnight in holding.

Well, some secondhand sources report he was getting very angry and belligerent, with his wife in the background so scared he would do something that she was literally screaming "PLEASE HAMMER, DON'T HURT 'EM!"

Yeah, I'm going to side with Hammer on this.  If the Police Department had a legit statement to give the press, I would have had some doubts, but the "We sometimes patrol that area" is such a red-flag-waving non-statement that I can't honestly believe the "arresting" officer was actually doing his job and not just hoping to nab himself a quick probation offender.  Hammer has quite publically cleaned up his act after all that early 90's Parachute Pant money dried up and he alienated everyone that ever mattered to him.  If they had made mention of him running a stop sign or, you know, actually committing some kind of crime, then I would be waiting until both sides of the story have come out.  But if all they did was arrest him for being there and not being happy about being arrested, then I call bullshiat because he SHOULD be not happy about being arrested since he WASN'T DOING ANYTHING WRONG.  I'm not a "fark tha Police" kind of Farker, but I also don't believe the cops have the right to ruin your day with the cop version of "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, If you touch me you're under arrested, I'm not touching you!!!".

What failed exactly? Some guy gets arrested for minding his own business or that people are more concerned with making a wise crack than to be outraged?

He could have backed down but he was too legit to quit.

Yeah, it's circular logic.  What did you arrest him for?  "Resisting arrest."  What was the original arrest for?  "Uhhhhh."
