Disorderly conduct applies to a wide range of behavior. For example, under 720 ILCS 5/26-1, disorderly conduct includes an "act in such unreasonable manner as to alarm or disturb another and to provoke a breach of the peace.” Because this definition is so vague, you may end up charged with disorderly conduct merely for offending someone.

Disorderly conduct is normally a Class C misdemeanor, but you can be charged with a Class B or Class A misdemeanor, or even a Class 4 or Class 3 felony, depending on the allegations. Additionally, all disorderly conduct charges require 30-120 hours of community service if you are convicted.

What You Should Do

  • Be respectful.
  • Calmly record the interaction.
  • Ask if you are free to leave. If you do not ask, the officer may think—and the judge may agree—that the interaction was consensual.
  • If you are free to leave, go! If you are not free to leave, do not answer any questions before speaking with your attorney.

What You Should Not Do

  • Do not physically resist arrest.
  • Do not become aggressive or confrontational.
  • Do not consent to a search. The Constitution does not apply if you consent.
  • Do not answer questions without first speaking with your attorney. Police are allowed to hold you for 48 hours and they may lie to you the entire time.
