First of all, the Crown must prove that the police officer was doing his job and acting pursuant to a lawful purpose. Once this has been proven, it must be shown that the accused person was able to successfully keep the police officer from carrying out the officer’s duty and that the officer’s work was affected by this obstruction.
If a person accidentally obstructed the police officer in any way possible, that person would not be found guilty of obstruction.
