Phoenix Disorderly Conduct Attorney

Disorderly Conduct Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona

There are many different scenarios under which a person can be charged with disorderly conduct. Because the laws regarding disorderly conduct are written so broadly, many police officers use disorderly conduct as a charge of last resort when they are determined to make an arrest of an individual. A charge of disorderly conduct can be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony which might be determined by whether a gun or other weapon was involved in the incident. Phoenix Criminal Lawyer Joshua S. Davidson has handled hundreds of such cases between his time as a prosecutor and a Phoenix defense attorney, including cases ranging from unreasonable noise to the reckless discharge of firearm.

  • Creates unreasonable noise

  • Produces a protracted display or commotion with the intent of disturbing a meeting or the completion of a business transaction

  • Brandishes, fires or handles a gun or other weapon while acting recklessly

  • Participates in significantly disruptive behavior, fighting or violent activity

  • Attempts to provoke another person into a physical confrontation by being verbally offensive or using abusive gestures
