Phoenix Disorderly Conduct Lawyer
Disorderly Conduct in the Arizona Revised Statutes
The purpose of many laws is to maintain peace and order in cities, counties and states. In the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.), section 13-2904 specifically outlaws "disorderly conduct," also known as "disturbing the peace." The following conduct is illegal in the state of Arizona:
- Intentional disturbing of the peace and quiet of a neighborhood, family or person
- Engaging in a fight, or in violent or disruptive behavior
- Making unreasonable noise
- Use of abusive or offensive language or gestures with the intention of provoking another person to immediate physical retaliation
- Disrupting the transaction of a business meeting, gathering or procession
- Refusing to obey a lawful order to disperse for public safety reasons in the event of a fire, hazard or other emergency
- Reckless handling, display or discharge of a deadly weapon or dangerous object
Should a person violate any of these areas of the law, they could be charged with a class 1 misdemeanor, or a class 6 felony if the offense involved a deadly weapon or dangerous object.
