Disorderly Conduct is one of the more commonly prosecuted misdemeanors, chiefly because the statute includes such a wide range of conduct within its definition. For example, Disorderly Conducts includes engaging in conduct “knowing, or having reasonable grounds to know that it will, or will tend to, alarm, anger or disturb others or provoke an assault or breach of the peace” in either a private or public place. Disorderly Conduct can also include fighting, brawling, interrupting a meeting or assembly, or engaging in conduct that is considered noisy or offensive.
