Resisting Arrest or Hindering Police

Interfering with or preventing police from doing their job is an offence in Queensland and New South Wales, and you can be charged with the offence if you resist or hinder police while they are working, or encourage someone else to do so.

The maximum penalty for a conviction is 10 penalty units or imprisonment for up to 12 months.
