(B) Whoever violates this section is guilty of failure to aid a law enforcement officer, a minor misdemeanor.
Interesting law. Certainly a lot of vagueness. What is the definition of substantial risk. Also, what if you are obliged based on the law, only later to get sued in civil court for any actions you took?

Have to find out if we have such a thing in PA.
