Disturbing The Peace

Disturbing the peace is a misdemeanor or infraction level crime that can best be described as causing a loud or obnoxious disturbance that is upsetting to the people around you. It can also describe behavior consistent with picking a fight or being generally offensive. This charge is considered to be relatively minor in nature and can sometimes be offered in a plea bargain as a lesser offense to assault, battery or criminal threats. It is intentionally broad so that it can encompass a wide range of activities.
