Disarming a Police Officer in Pennsylvania and Other Charges

Please note that our PA lawyers can help get a criminal record cleaned or “expunged”; but we do not offer criminal defense at this time, so we do not handle the defense of charges for:

18 Pa.C.S.A. § 5104.1. Disarming law enforcement officer
(a) OFFENSE DEFINED.– A person commits the offense of disarming a law enforcement officer if he:

(1) without lawful authorization, removes or attempts to remove a firearm, rifle, shotgun or weapon from the person of a law enforcement officer or corrections officer, or deprives a law enforcement officer or corrections officer of the use of a firearm, rifle, shotgun or weapon, when the officer is acting within the scope of the officer’s duties; and

(2) has reasonable cause to know or knows that the individual is a law enforcement officer or corrections officer.

(b) GRADING.– A violation of this section constitutes a felony of the third degree.
