I'm in whiterun right after you slay the first dragon...

I was randomly running around messing with the shout and accidentally hit a guard with

All the guards swarm me. I left and tried to come back in hopes they would try to arrest me but they all draw their swords the minute they see me

Even if i let them kill me i keep just reloading and dieing

I think I read one of the tips where it said you can sheathe your weapon and the guard(s) will stop fighting you, accept your tield and try to "arrest" you. Whatever that means.

If I was in your situation, I would try to run away, come back with an unsheathed weapon, let them hit me a couple of times, sheathe the weapon and see what happens. Just a wild guess here.

I've tried all of that and they just bum rush me the minute i appear i've taken out my weapon and re sheathed it no such luck =\

Well I'm out of ideas then. According to the wiki, sheathing your weapon while in combat counts as a yield, so the guards should try to arrest you (initiate dialog?).

Apparently I'm not the only one it's happened too

seems like a weird bug/glitch

I tried going to riverrun to pay off the bounty and everyone in the town just kind of rushed me

Guard: Stop you criminal scum!

Pay fines
Go to jail
Resist Arrest.

Your answer is hidden in one of these options.

In Oblivion it was sheathe and then block wasn't it?

Seriously, this question still hasn't been answered. You guys are all "lol just pay teh gold"

Can I please have an exact step by step on how to stop being murdered?

I've ran around with my weapon sheathed

I've tried blocking and talking

Is this some sort of glitch?

I'M SORRY I KILLED YOUR CHICKEN, LADY, I'LL PAY FOR IT STOP ATTACKING ME
