It’s NOT civil disobedience if you run from the law.  The whole idea of civil disobedience is that you believe the law is unjust and/or unconstitutional, you break it, get arrested, then prove your case in court and are exonerated.  With that exoneration on the books, then you or another party challenge the law itself, and cite your personal trial and ruling as precedent.  Also: in the US you cannot break the law for political reasons; that defense alone will not hold up in court.
