A mugging is a crime that involves physical force or threat of physical force against another person and that causes serious bodily harm or death.
The law on mugging states that the act of grabbing the victim by the arm or arm’s length can be used as a defence.
In New York, it is a misdemeanor offence for a person who is not in custody to do anything to cause a person to be restrained from escaping from the scene of a mugged.
In Queensland, a person is guilty of the offence of unlawfully restraining another person from escaping when they: grab them by the arms or arm or by their legs or buttocks; force them to go down on their stomach, legs or belly and pull them against the wall or other part of their body.
The person can be arrested for resisting arrest, or obstructing police, and will be liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year.
The same offence applies in Victoria, where a person commits the offence when they force a person against a wall or barrier to go into a room, a street or an alley.
If the person in custody is in breach of bail conditions or if they are released from custody without a bond, they are liable to a fine of up to $100,000.
The court can order a person in a custody to surrender their weapons, but a person can only be ordered to surrender one weapon at a time.
In Victoria, the maximum fine for the offence is $1,000 or imprisonment for up to 12 months, depending on the circumstances.
The Supreme Court of Queensland has held that a person has the right to resist arrest when they are detained in a detention facility and are not in a custodial situation.
The decision is based on a number of circumstances including the seriousness of the offending and the person’s capacity to understand the law and defend themselves.
In an interview with the ABC, a Queensland State Police officer said that when a person was being restrained by a police officer, there was no need to put his arm around them, and if there was a weapon that he had, he should not have the weapon and should not use it.
“The person that was arrested did not need to arm themselves or any other weapons to resist,” he said.
“It is their decision whether or not they want to resist.”
However, the officer said he would not force a man to take off his pants and put them on.
He said a man who was held against a bar or restaurant door was still in custody if he resisted arrest, but the police officer would not use force on him.
The ABC asked Queensland police why they did not charge someone with assaulting a police dog during a mugge.
A spokesman for Queensland Police said it was not the officers role to use force.
“Police do not use a weapon or other means of restraint on individuals, as we would expect people to comply with any lawful authority given,” he wrote in an email.
“When a person attempts to resist, police use their lawful authority to restrain the individual.”
If a person refuses to comply or attempts to escape, they may be subject to a further lawful authority, including an assault charge, for a criminal offence.
“However, in situations where a police officers use force, they do so in accordance with all relevant legislation, including section 43 of the Criminal Code, and the principles of self-defence set out in the relevant sections of the Crimes Act 1900.”
He said officers would “immediately contact the person who assaulted the dog in the course of the arrest” and if necessary, make contact with the dog owner.
