Disorderly conduct is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days imprisonment, $1,000 fine or both. In order to be convicted of disorderly conduct the State must prove the following two elements:
- The person charged engaged in vioent, abusive, indecent, profane, boisterous, unreasonably loud or otherwise disorderly conduct.
- The offense conduct, under the circumstances, tended to cause or provoke a disturbance.
Disorderly conduct has a very broad definition and multiple instances of conduct and behavior can be considered and charged as disorderly conduct. For example, a verbal disagreement between two people can be interpreted and charged as disorderly conduct.
