Can amerikanische Polizei charge you with obstructing justice because you won't give them your Papiere?

Never thought that I'd have to carry papers and submit myself to proving who I am at the whim of a police officer.

I'm not sure this even rises to the level of the incredibly abused "resonable articulable suspicion of a particularized criminal activity1."

1 You know, the standard that allows police to stop cars because the driver has the temerity to hang a rosary from the rearview mirror.
