Edit: The decision was affirmed on appeal.
Not the offence of resisting police, anyway. Thanks to Jeremy Gans for letting me know about this pending appeal.
In Hemingway v Hamilton  VMC 10 it was alleged that the accused had left a restaurant without paying the bill. When the police who arrived indicated to the accused that they wanted to speak to him he took off on foot, and a classic foot chase ensued of the kind that fans of The Bill will be familiar with.
As I said at the time, there isn’t anything surprising in the magistrate’s original decision, and I think it unlikely to be disturbed on the appeal. While not running from the police might be the right (and sometimes, smart) thing to do, absent a specific obligation the police force don’t own a tractor beam that requires anyone to stop when an officer shouts “Freeze!”
Magistrate Garnett went so far as to hint [at 9] that a different charge would have been successful in the same circumstances,
There has been a number of other of decisions to the effect that the offence of obstructing or hindering the police is committed if the acts of an accused make it more difficult for the police to carry out their duties: However, Mr Hamilton has not been charged with obstructing or hindering the police under s 52(1) of the Act. He has been charged with resisting LSC Hemingway in the execution of his duty.
Perhaps the appeal submits that the magistrate ought to have made the amendment to the cognate charge, pursuant to Thomson v Lee  360 and Heddich v Dike (1981) 3 A Crim R 139. It’s not clear from the article I read, but it doesn’t appear that way.
Kaye J has reserved his decision.
