9:45 a.m. 49S02-1401-CR-50. Thinking that Griffin might have been “unstable,” a police officer stopped and asked what was happening. Griffin shouted incoherently, threw “two kind of shadow punches” at the officer, and ran away.  Griffin was ordered to stop, but he did not. He struck an officer as he was being taken into custody.  In the Marion Superior Court, Griffin was convicted of resisting law enforcement, and of battery on a law enforcement officer.  Ind. Code § 35-44-3-3 (2011) (resisting); Ind. Code § 35-42-2-1 (2009) (battery).  The Court of Appeals reversed the convictions for resisting and affirmed the conviction for battery.  Griffin v. State, 997 N.E.2d 375 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
