Disorderly Conduct

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
  • Fighting
  • Inciting a riot
  • Trespassing

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
