ATLANTA — Under Georgia law, a person may damage government property in an attempt to resist an unlawful arrest. Therefore, the Supreme Court of Georgia reversed the revocation of a man’s probation on grounds that he committed felony interference with government property by kicking the door of a police car while detained inside. The man had a right to resist the baseless arrest for loitering and to use proportionate force against government property.
