This section is included in your selections.

It is unlawful for any person to:

(1) Knowingly fail to stop when requested or signaled to do so by a person reasonably identifiable as a City police officer for a lawful investigatory detention; or

(2) Knowingly give false information as to his or her identity, current address, if any, or his or her activities when requested by a City police officer to give such information when stopped for a lawful investigatory detention by a City police officer.

For purposes of this section a “lawful investigatory detention” means that an officer has a reasonable suspicion based upon objective facts to believe that the person stopped or signaled to stop was engaging in, or had engaged in, criminal conduct. Giving false information to a police officer is a gross misdemeanor. [Ord. 3490 § 3, 2001; Code 1970 § 9.42.030.]
