ICJI 1263 DEFENSE: DEFENDING ONESELF AGAINST USE OF EXCESSIVE FORCE
INSTRUCTION NO.
An officer is not permitted to use unreasonable or excessive force [in making or attempting to make an arrest] [in detaining or attempting to detain a person for questioning].

If an officer does use unreasonable or excessive force [in making or attempting to make an arrest] [in detaining or attempting to detain a person for questioning], the person being [arrested] [detained] may lawfully use reasonable force to protect himself.

The state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt:

(1) that the officer did not use unreasonable force,



or

(2) if the officer used unreasonable force, that the defendant used unreasonable force in response.



If the state fails to do so, you must find the defendant not guilty [of [Resisting][,] [Delaying] [or] [Obstructing] an Officer].

Comment



State v. Spurr, 114 Idaho 277, 755 P.2d 1315 (Ct. App. 1988).
This instruction should be used where there is some evidence to support the defense that the defendant used reasonable force to resist the use of excessive force by the officer. Reasonable force is defined in ICJI 1518. See also ICJI 1264.
