Tennessee Disorderly Conduct Laws & Penalties

In Tennessee, disorderly conduct is governed by state statutes and local ordinances. Disorderly conduct generally refers to behavior that disrupts the peace or order in public places. The laws and penalties for disorderly conduct can vary depending on the specific circumstances and the severity of the offense.

Under Tennessee law, disorderly conduct is addressed in Section 39-17-305 of the Tennessee Code. According to this statute, a person commits disorderly conduct if they engage in any of the following behaviors:

  • Fighting or engaging in violent or tumultuous behavior in a public place or near a public gathering.
  • Making unreasonable noise that prevents the peaceful enjoyment of others in the vicinity.
  • Using abusive or obscene language or gestures in public, intending to provoke a violent or disorderly response.
  • Disturbing a lawful assembly or meeting without authority.

The penalties for disorderly conduct in Tennessee can include fines, imprisonment, or both, depending on the circumstances and the offender's prior record. Disorderly conduct is generally classified as a Class C misdemeanor in Tennessee, which is the least serious misdemeanor offense. The maximum penalties for a Class C misdemeanor in Tennessee can include a fine of up to $50 and/or imprisonment for up to 30 days.

It's important to note that penalties can vary based on factors such as aggravating circumstances, repeat offenses, or if the behavior escalates to more serious crimes. Additionally, local ordinances in specific cities or counties within Tennessee may have their own regulations regarding disorderly conduct, which can differ from the state statutes.
