what ever the law allows, never but never run from a police officer, as it could end up worse then just a failure to stop

That type of obstruction in GA is a misdemeanor. You will be sentenced to 1 year. Assuming you have no criminal background then most likely all of that, other than whatever time you've already spent in jail when you were arrested, will be on probation. If the judge decides to have some of that 1 year be in jail it probably won't be more than a few days or a couple of weeks. Then the remainder of the year will be on probation. Once your probation is up you're done. Unless you violate your probation by not showing up at the probation officer's appointments, or violating other laws while on probation. If that's the case you'd go back to jail for however much time you had left on your probation at that time, so up to a year.

If you are charged with misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer, you face a maximum penalty of up to one year in the county jail. The sentencing range for a misdemeanor conviction of this type is 1-365 days in jail, all of which could be probated.
