Holder v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Officers were dispatched to defendant’s home in response to a complaint involving what turned out to be, after interviewing several people, misdemeanor family assault charges against defendant. An officer told defendant he was under arrest for the misdemeanor assaults. The officers then attempted to open the door to defendant’s home. Defendant resisted by trying to keep the door shut. In the process, defendant struck an officer, the door was opened, and defendant was arrested without a warrant for the misdemeanor assaults as well as the charges in this indictment, two counts of assault and battery of a law enforcement officer in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-57(c).  The defendant moved to suppress his arrest.  The issue was whether defendant was lawfully arrested, and, if not, whether his resistance to arrest was unreasonable.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-81 provides that duly constituted police of any city may make a warrantless arrest for assault and battery not committed in their presence. The key to validity is the possession of sufficient knowledge by the officer to lead a reasonable person to believe an offense had been committed.
