Admittedly, our client was resisting arrest, but he maintained that the contact with the officer was simply accidental and that he did not intentionally strike the officer. At trial, we were able to describe the event with evidence and argument in such a way that convinced the Judge that there was insufficient evidence to prove our client committed an assault and battery.
