Disorderly conduct laws in Chandler are broad and cover many criminal activities. Some refer to the disorderly conduct charge as the “catch all” criminal charge given a large amount of conduct that this charge encompasses. As you could probably guess, most of the language of the law is extremely broad.
Most disorderly conduct charges in Chandler are charged as class 1 misdemeanors. These criminal acts generally consist of behaviors such as:
Disturbing the peace of the public
Tring to provoke someone by using offensive language
Fighting or wrestling
Being unreasonably noisy
Refusing to leave an area once being directed to do so by law enforcement officers.

It is important to note that the list mentioned above is suggestive—not exhaustive. The charge of disorderly conduct can, however, exceed the misdemeanor threshold into felony charges. Specifically, if a person “recklessly handles, displays, or discharges a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument,” then they could be charged with disorderly conduct—a class 6 felony. While class 6 felony charges can often be mitigated to a ‘misdemeanor compromise,’ any criminal charges should be taken seriously. If a person is facing criminal charges should immediately seek representation to explore their options with experience and foresight.
