“Alabama law gives a citizen the right to use force to resist an unlawful arrest . . . [and] permits a person to use reasonable force to defend himself from what he reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of unlawful force.” Morris v. Town of Lexington, Alabama, 748 F.3d 1316, 1325 (11th Cir. 2014); see also Telfare v. City of Huntsville, 841 So. 2d 1222, 1229 (Ala. 2002) (“The law is clear that, to a limited degree, a party is justified in attempting to resist an unlawful arrest. A party may use reasonable force to extricate himself from an unlawful arrest.” (internal citations omitted)).
