Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • When an officer attempts to arrest a person charged with a felony and uses more force than is reasonably necessary to make the arrest, the officer himself becomes a wrongdoer and the person whose arrest is sought, if himself without fault, can resist such excessive force. Whether the force used is reasonable is a mixed question of law and fact. In reviewing the factual predicate for the trial court's ruling, the appellate court views the evidence in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth..
