Sec. 542.501. OBEDIENCE REQUIRED TO POLICE OFFICERS AND TO SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS. A person may not wilfully fail or refuse to comply with a lawful order or direction of:
(1) a police officer; or
(2) a school crossing guard who:
(A) is performing crossing guard duties in a school crosswalk to stop and yield to a pedestrian; or
(B) has been trained under Section 600.004 and is directing traffic in a school crossing zone.
Jason went on to further point out how it was funny that he could find the statute and the "super lawyers" couldn't. Mr. Bennett replied to that post saying he didn't realize that the statute covered both police and crossing guards. That is admirable of Mr. Bennett to admit that. Now, the post has been removed entirely! This reminds me of an exchange I had with a prosecutor who plied his lawyer tricks on me when complaining about a fellow officer. Mr. Chief Prosecutor left out a few crucial details as to make him look like the victim. That post will come another day.
