Tell Me More About Disorderly Conduct in Las Vegas
Disorderly conduct is often referred to as one of those vague catch-all offenses that the police use to arrest individuals when there is not a specific offense involved:
- Individuals who are causing a disturbance – as seen through the eyes of the officer
- Frequently this offense is given to people who are creating a disturbance in bars, casinos, nightclubs, shows, on the Strip
- Also, the charge may be given at rallies on the Strip or if there are protests involving disorderly conduct
Fines for Disorderly Conduct
Often, a disorderly conduct offense can be negotiated or dismissed in a court of law, so long as the defendant has a clean criminal record and violence was not involved. There may be a fine, however, often up to a few hundred dollars. The defendant may also be required to engage in a specific number of community service hours a well. Unless violence was involved, a jail sentence may be considered extreme.
