Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly Conduct Defense Lawyers in Lansing & Metro Detroit

Drunk and disorderly, or disorderly conduct, is codified under MCL 750.167. A disorderly individual is a person who is intoxicated in a public place and/or who is either endangering directly the safety of another person or of property or is acting in a manner that causes a public disturbance. A disorderly person is also one who is engaged in indecent or obscene conduct in a public place. Either one of these could apply to someone who urinates in public. Anyone who disturbs the public peace and quiet by loud or boisterous conduct or by engaging in any disturbance, fight, brawl or quarrel in any public place could also end up with a disorderly conduct charge.
