Disorderly Conduct

Just because you are charged with a crime, doesn’t mean you are necessarily a criminal. In fact, many people that are charged with disorderly conduct were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Because of the ambiguous nature of the law itself, many good people have been charged incorrectly with this crime.

In the state of Tennessee, any of the following four actions could result in disorderly conduct charges –

  1. fight or engage in violent, threatening behavior,
  2. create a dangerous or offensive condition,
  3. refuse to disperse from an emergency after being ordered by the police, or
  4. make unreasonable noise that hinders others from carrying on in their lawful activities

It is pretty easy to see how those definitions are open to interpretation. For instance, a “dangerous or offensive condition” is very much a judgment determination and could vary even from one police officer to another.
