Rice v Connolly 
- A member of the public who was acting suspiciously near a crime scene refused to answer a police officer’s questions; he was not under arrest
- Was the member of the public obstructing a police officer in the execution of his duty in not answering the questions?
- There is no duty to answer a police officer’s questions; no obstruction of an officer in the execution of his duty despite making the officer’s job more difficult
