Strange as it may seem, this is a very common occurrence. The Nevada Revised Statutes are very clear on this issue:
NRS 197.190 Obstructing public officer. Every person who, after due notice, shall refuse or neglect to make or furnish any statement, report or information lawfully required of the person by any public officer, or who, in such statement, report or information shall make any willfully untrue, misleading or exaggerated statement, or who shall willfully hinder, delay or obstruct any public officer in the discharge of official powers or duties, shall, where no other provision of law applies, be guilty of a misdemeanor.
This situation most often crops up in dealings with the police, from anything to being stopped on the sidewalk to major offenses like drunk driving. It is always best to cooperate with law enforcement officials of the state so as to avoid dealing with legal problems, even minor ones like misdemeanors, but if you or anyone in your family finds themselves in a situation such as this one, set up a meeting with me. I am an expert in these matters and will protect your rights. Call me now at 702-383-0090!
