What is Disorderly Conduct in Arapahoe County?
This is a great question because the crime of Disorderly Conduct is defined differently in every state. I recently read a Denver Post article where a Highlands Ranch man was charged with Disorderly Conduct in an Alaskan airport for jokingly saying that a bomb was in his friend's luggage. This is probably not what he would have been charged with at Denver International Airport. There are five basic ways a person is charged with Disorderly Conduct, C.R.S. 18-9-106, in Denver or Arapahoe County, or anywhere across Colorado. They include; making an offensive utterance or gesture in a public place to incite a breach of the peace, by making unreasonable noise in a public place, by fighting, by discharging a firearm in a public place, or by displaying a firearm or deadly weapon to cause alarm.
