An arrest for disorderly conduct is always just a few bad decisions away. What might start as a reasonably normal and completely harmless situation can escalate quickly when tempers flare or when too much alcohol is involved.
This was the case recently when a famous television actor was arrested in Tempe, Arizona for disorderly conduct. The accused was arrested at a local art festival at approximately 2:30 am where officers say they found signs of damaged property. Reports say that the suspect became unruly and began knocking over tables and metal stanchions inside a tent filled with artwork.
He was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and criminal damage.
An investigation is underway regarding what triggered the outburst and whether others were involved. Police are also looking closely at what role alcohol played in the incident.
Disorderly conduct charges and how well they hold up in court come down to the details of the case. When charged with disorderly conduct, it’s imperative that you begin working with a criminal defense attorney right away. An attorney who knows what they are doing will be able to investigate the incident the right way and ask the right questions. Even the smallest discrepancy can have a major impact on the outcome of the case.
These small details can also easily escalate the charges to aggravated assault. Your attorney can help to prevent this once they have the details of the case.
We highly suggest that, once charged or arrested with disorderly conduct charges, you seek legal counsel immediately. Know your rights to discuss your case with a lawyer before answering too many questions that may hurt you more than help you.
