The Phoenix Open is an environment where your behavior may meet some or all of those conditions, creating the potential for multiple charges being filed against you for a single incident. As the safety of spectators, golfers, and performers attending the event is of paramount importance to event organizers, even a perceived act of disorderly conduct can result in the police being called to the scene. For those caught up in the incident, facing charges of disorderly conduct is not uncommon. Something that you say or do in the heat of the moment can come back to haunt you and the next thing you know, you are facing fines and jail time and your future reputation has been placed in serious jeopardy.
Under Arizona law, disorderly conduct is any behavior that is considered disorderly. The law doesn’t provide a set of factors for someone to face the charge. For instance, to commit assault, the State of Arizona must prove a person intentionally or knowingly caused injury or put another in fear in imminent fear of harm. Disorderly conduct doesn’t have similar factors or elements. This means, if a Gilbert Police officer believes a person’s behavior is disorderly, then it’s disorderly. As you can see, this is completely subjective.
