A: I would honestly have to know more about the facts of the case, with that being said however, the disorderly conduct statute in Ohio is pretty broad, so it could certainly apply in your case, especially if law enforcement were present. If you have been charged with disorderly conduct I would strongly advice you to retain counsel.
