Riverside Disorderly Conduct Lawyer
Disorderly Conduct Cases in California
There are many actions considered disorderly conduct that can fall under this category, including:
- Public drunkenness
- Inciting a riot
It is often used as a "catch-all" crime to cover numerous types of behavior when no other charge will serve.
When someone is not being a danger to the public, but is acting in a disruptive manner, he or she may be charged with the crime of disorderly conduct. Police and state prosecutors may be over-reaching when they view some acts as being criminal.
Though acts such as yelling at someone in a restaurant, playing loud music, or making an obscene gesture may be bad manners, they may not constitute a crime. Some examples of disorderly conduct charges are:
- Disturbing the peace
- Public drunkenness
- Loitering in certain places
- Having a physical altercation
- Obstructing traffic
- Use of obscene or abusive language
- Loud or unreasonable noise
