What is Disorderly Conduct?
Disorderly conduct is one of the most common misdemeanor criminal charges that Phoenix residents face. It also happens to be one of the more serious non-felony crimes because most offenses are considered Class 1 misdemeanors under Arizona law.
It isn’t uncommon for someone to be wrongfully charged with disorderly conduct because interpretation of the law is so subjective and left to the discretion of the police officer. Any of the following infractions can be grounds for a disorderly conduct charge, according to ARS 13-2904:
- Disturbs the peace or quiet of a neighborhood, person, or family member
- Engages in violent or disruptive behavior
- Makes unreasonable noise
- Uses offensive or abusive language or gestures in an attempt to provoke another person
- Refuses to obey a lawful order to disperse from the proximity of an emergency
- Recklessly handles, displays, or discharges a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument
As you can see, not every offense associated with disorderly conduct is cut and dry. Exactly what actions can constitute disruptive behavior? Just how much noise is considered unreasonable? That’s left up to the individual officer to decide.
