Can an arrest in DC lead to an additional assault charge?

What would you do if you were being arrested by a Washington, D.C., police officer? If you were originally trying to resist arrest or even just make it more difficult for the officer to put handcuffs on you, is it possible you could be found guilty of criminal assault, too? Luckily, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals recently ruled that the government must show that an arrestee intends to assault a police officer before he or she can be convicted of an additional simple assault charge.
