UFC lightweight Spencer Fisher was arrested in Bettendorf, Iowa on Tuesday for "interfering with an official act," which could mean anything from tearing up a parking ticket a meter maid was writing him to refusing to allow animal control to take his dog that had gotten loose from his yard.
He was released on $300 bond on his own recognizance.
Here's a further description of the charge from the Sioux City Police:
A person who knowingly resists or obstructs anyone known by the person to be a civilian city employee in the performance of any act which is within the scope of the lawful duty or authority of that employee commits a simple misdemeanor. However, this section shall not apply to interference with a peace officer, firefighter, or any authorized person serving or executing civil or criminal process or court order. This section does not apply if a person commits an interference with official acts as defined in this section and in so doing inflicts bodily injury or attempts to inflict serious bodily injury or displays a dangerous weapon or is armed with a firearm. The terms “resist” and “obstruct” as used in this section, do not include verbal harassment unless the verbal harassment is accompanied by a present ability and apparent intention to execute a verbal threat physically. (Ord. 99-8131; 90/T-8391)
