Disorderly Conduct can be committed by several different kinds of conduct that intentionally disturb or create a hazard to others. You could be charged with disorderly conduct for actions including:
- disturbing others by making unreasonably loud noise if you intend to disturb others, or if you continue after being told that you are disturbing others;
- refusing to comply with a lawful order of a peace officer to disperse;
- challenging another person to fight or fighting when not in self-defense;
- recklessly creating a hazardous condition for others by an act which has no legal justification or excuse; or
- “mooning” another person, or similar offensive act.
