Disorderly Conduct In Wisconsin
A charge of disorderly conduct can arise as the result of many actions in Wisconsin. The crime can be committed by engaging in “violent, abusive, indecent, or unreasonably loud conduct” that tends to disturb or provoke others. While many actions can fall under this definition, the one thing that unites them is the fact that they tend to upset, anger, or annoy others.
While vague and open to interpretation, charges of disorderly conduct can still have long-lasting and far-reaching consequences. Disorderly conduct is classified as a Class B misdemeanor. It is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and fines of up to $1,000.
