Under the driving code, a driver of a vehicle, who is given a signal by the police to bring his or her motor vehicle to a stop, must not fail to obey or attempt to flee or elude the police .

You can also be charged under the criminal code if you are not driving and you fail to stop for a police officer if he is lawfully carrying out his duties.

In Michigan, it is legal under common law to flea an unlawful arrest.
Punishment for Fleeing and Eluding is very harsh and the Prosecutor will try to make an example of you to others that they must obey police orders. James Schmier will examine the facts and determine if the stop was legal and if the officer was acting lawfully. For instance, if the officer is making an illegal arrest or doesn't have probable cause to arrest you, you may ignore the officer and not be charged. Or if you have been charged, to have the charges dismissed. Lastly, being charged under the criminal may allow you to expunge the conviction, where being charged under the driving code means this conviction stays on your record for life. An experienced attorney may be able to help in this situation.
