Arrested charged disorderly conduct East Rutherford NJ

Disorderly Conduct

It’s a common football fan’s story: goes to watch the game, has one-too-many, team is losing, trash talking begins, and then punches get thrown. On the one hand this sounds harmless but, on the other, it’s technically illegal and can lead to charges for disorderly conduct and simple assault – and worst of all a permanent criminal record. Recently, the defense team at the Tormey Law Firm represented a client who was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct for allegedly throwing beer and punching another fan during a football game at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. But after our zealous defense, our client walked away with a dismissal of the assault charges and only a downgraded municipal ordinance for the original disorderly conduct charge, resulting in a small fine and, most importantly, no criminal record. If you are in a similar situation and facing either simple assault or disorderly conduct charges stemming from an event at Metlife Stadium, contact the defense team at the Tormey Law Firm to learn about how we can help you fight the charges.

According to N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(a), a person is guilty of the disorderly persons offense of simple assault if he 1) attempts to cause or purposefully, knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another; 2) negligently causes bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon; or 3) attempts by physical menace to put another in fear of imminent serious bodily injury. As for disorderly conduct, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2(a) and (b), a person is guilty of a petty disorderly persons offense if with purpose to cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating risk thereof he 1) engages in fighting or threatening, or in a violent or tumultuous behavior; or 2) creates a hazardous or physically dangerous condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose; or if in a public place, and with purpose to offend the sensibilities of a hearer or in reckless disregard of the probability of so doing, he uses unreasonably loud and offensively coarse or abusive language.

The penalties for a disorderly persons offense such as simple assault include up to a $1,000 fine and 6 months in jail; and the penalties for a petty disorderly persons offense such as disorderly conduct include up to a $500 fine and 30 days in jail. In our recent client’s case in the East Rutherford Municipal Court, we successfully defended the case and negotiated a deal with the prosecutor in which the simple assault charges were dismissed and the disorderly conduct charges were downgraded to a municipal ordinance for disorderly behavior which carried only a small fine and, more importantly, no jail time and no criminal record.
