DISORDERLY CONDUCT & DISTURBING THE PEACE CHARGES
If you’ve ever watched Cops the TV show you’re probably familiar with a Disorderly Conduct charge. It seems to be the catch-all charge for law enforcement to use when someone is acting out or acting erratically. More importantly, if you are facing disorderly conduct charges yourself, you know first hand that they can be very serious charges in the state of Missouri. Typically the charges will stem from a public display of disorder where the action you’ve taken has been considered a nuisance to the public. For instance, if you’re disturbing the peace by getting into a fight at a bar or restaurant you could possibly be arrested for disorderly conduct. However, they may come about they can be a real pain the neck for someone who is looking to stay clear of the law.
