Before "resisting arrest" can occur, it needs to be clear that a person is being arrested. During the intent to arrest, a person must immediately be given a reason for the arrest: "You're under arrest for ...".
If police begin struggling with someone that hasn't been told they're being arrested, there can be no "resisting".
