At one point or another, many of us have engaged in actions that – if done in the wrong place and at the wrong time – could result in a disorderly conduct criminal charge. Because the definition of disorderly conduct in Virginia is relatively broad, and police officers often exercise significant discretion in deciding whether to arrest an individual for disorderly conduct, many people who have never had a brush with the law find themselves charged with disorderly conduct.
