It’s expected that people in society will always behave with proper manners and etiquette; however this is not always the case.
When people exhibit behavior that is unruly, obnoxious, or disturbing to other members in society they may be charged with disorderly conduct.
The most common form of disorderly conduct may be public drunkenness.
A good example of disorderly conduct may be if someone is playing very loud music in their apartment or home, and refuses to turn down the volume when asked by neighbors.
Other situation may involve two or more people fighting in public and refusing to break things up…. nvolve inciting riots or even loitering or cursing in certain areas.
Disorderly conduct is the most common reason why people are arrested, therefore, it isn’t uncommon for people to be charged for disorderly conduct and later to have the charges dropped.
But disorderly conduct laws vary from state to state. In some states it could be considered a felony.
Disorderly conduct is a charge that can be difficult to prove. But, don’t think it’s a trivial matter.
If you have been arrested for disorderly conduct, retain the services of a qualified attorney to handle your case.
