- Drunk driving offenses

A Large Police Presence In The District
The Kansas City, Missouri Power and Light District is a great place to dine, drink and play. Many off-duty Kansas City, Missouri police officers serve as bouncers and private security in and around the Power and Light District. They are quick to criminally charge, or issue you a ticket or citation for violating Kansas City Ordinances, or, in more serious cases, State of Missouri misdemeanors or felonies, forcing a court appearance in the Jackson County Circuit Court.
Resisting arrest, means obstructing or interfering with a law enforcement officer who is attempting to make an arrest or perform his or her lawful duties, even if the person arrested believes that the arrest is unlawful. Examples of resisting arrest may include physically struggling against an officer who is trying to handcuff you, running away from an officer who is attempting to apprehend you, or using force against an officer. Even pulling away is enough to constitute resisting arrest. A person is not authorized to use physical force to resist being lawfully arrested by a police officer.
Both the Kansas City, Missouri Municipal Court as well as the Jackson County Circuit Court, and the Federal Courthouse for the Western District of Missouri are located just blocks from the Power and Light District. The Kansas City, Missouri Police Headquarters is also within walking distance to the Power and Light District making it a hot spot for police presence. Police officers are more than willing to write a ticket or criminally charge and/or arrest you for any type of misconduct. It’s always best to comply with law enforcement and address any grievances or concerns through appropriate legal channels.
