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.
