Penalties for Disturbing the Peace in Wisconsin

Disorderly conduct (also known as disturbing the peace or breach of the peace) can refer to violent, indecent, or unreasonably loud behavior. Disorderly conduct is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $1000 and up to 90 days in jail.

While public intoxication is a public health problem rather than a crime, police can take a publicly drunk person into protective custody. On the other hand, committing disorderly conduct in Wisconsin while intoxicated is a crime.

If you are pulled over for an OWI in Wisconsin and things get out of hand, you could be facing both disorderly conduct and drunk driving charges. You need our experienced defense attorneys on your side to get your charges reduced or dropped.
