Disorderly conduct is disrupting the public by being too loud, recklessly engaging in violent behavior, disrupting a peaceful assembly of people or being too rowdy. If someone is alarmed and disturbed by what you are doing, you may be charged. Disorderly conduct charges are generally class C misdemeanor offenses and could be lodged against you for setting off fireworks, blasting loud music, making threats to people, being too intoxicated in public, pulling a fire alarm or yelling “fire” in a crowd, as well as many other situations. Although you may be eligible for court supervision (no conviction on your permanent record), you could also be convicted. In either situation, you may face 30 to 120 mandatory public service/community service hours, in addition to fines.
