Default Shots fired at Biden's home

Shots fired at Biden's Home in Delaware:

A vehicle drove by the vice president's house in Delaware Saturday night and fired multiple gun shots, the Secret Service said Sunday.

Fortunately Joe Biden and his wife Jill were not home at the time.

The shots were heard by Secret Service personnel posted at the residence and the vehicle was observed leaving the scene "at a high rate of speed," according to agency spokesman Robert Hoback.

While the incident was being investigated at about 9 p.m., an individual in a vehicle attempted to pass a New Castle County police officer who was securing the outer perimeter of the area and, as a result of the interaction with the officer, that individual was arrested for resisting arrest, officials said. It was unclear if that person was involved in any way with the shooting, USSS officials said.

It was also undetermined if any shots actually hit the residence, which is several hundred yards from the main road and not visible from that street. The investigation is ongoing.

If Joe was home all he had to do was fire his shotgun off his porch and that would scare them away...

I am unable to understand "arrested for resisting arrest."

I thought with Joe, the lights are always on and there is never anyone at home

In german law, you get arrested for resisting arrest (or resisting police) if you try to run, or to fight the officer off.
It is, however, surely an unfortunate way to say that.

That, I get but if all he was only arrested for was resisting arrest, why were they arresting him in the first place?

In other words, resisting arrest is an additional charge that comes after you resist being arrested for something else.
