Combining drinking, parties, and bar chaos often leads to bar fights and other disputes that could result in your arrest. Likewise, when police officers bust up a party or when a minor runs away from an officer, participants may be charged with disorderly conduct. These charges can carry serious penalties, including fines and a lasting criminal record.
If you are either charged with a crime or you are a suspect in a criminal investigation it is important that you contact an experienced criminal attorney immediately. You should NOT meet with the police or any law enforcement officials without your attorney present. If you are contacted by law enforcement for your statement or an interview you should politely decline to speak with them until you have retained counsel.

Often, minors are charged with disorderly conduct when they cannot be charged with any other crime.

- Disorderly Conduct
