There are two ways that this can happen. The first way is by engaging in improper behavior under subsection (a) of 2C:33-2. An individual commits this form of disorderly conduct if he/she purposely or recklessly causes public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm as the result of fighting, threatening or tumultuous behavior, or creates a hazardous or dangerous condition which serves no legitimate purpose. The second pedigree of disorderly conduct involves use of offensive language in violation of 2C:33-2(b). If someone uses "unreasonably loud or offensively course or abusive language" in public.

What Clients Say About Our Ocean County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Exemplary attorneys. I hired them for a DUI and an expungement. I was happy with the results for both cases. Special thank you to Samera for always answering all of my calls and questions JC
I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
