This. When we give cops vague powers like this we dont just give them the power to arrest people who break the law, but also people who get anywhere close to breaking that law who are/will be found innocent. A lot of times its just a power move by a cop to force someone total submission on a person and if you dont the cops gets to beat your ass and charge you with resisting or assaulting him. One of my other favorite catch alls is "interfereing with a police officer/interfering with an investigation"
