"Man Urinates Next To Patrol Car". I see a lot of disorderly conduct arrests, didn't know what it's about. Can someone explain what this man did that was illegal. Seems like a catchall thing when officers don't know what to charge someone with. § 240.20 Disorderly conduct. A person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, with intent to cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof: 1. He engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior; or 2. He makes unreasonable noise; or 3. In a public place, he uses abusive or obscene language, or makes an obscene gesture; or 4. Without lawful authority, he disturbs any lawful assembly or meeting of persons; or 5. He obstructs vehicular or pedestrian traffic; or 6. He congregates with other persons in a public place and refuses to comply with a lawful order of the police to disperse; or 7. He creates a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose. Disorderly conduct is a violation. also law reads all over "HE". so what happens if a female does the same thing?

Rods - a) you are right, there are lots of laws that are just catchall offenses so the police can arrest you for pretty much any reason. (See Criminal Tampering Penal Law 145.14 for example). Welcome to America. b) The law does state that unless specified otherwise, "he" is used in a gender neutral way and applies to men and women, It is done for readability and because english does not have a gender neutral word for a person.

RODS, I'm sure the guy peeing wasn't straight. At of all the places to go, you go on A Police Car???? WHY??? Not behind or on the side of his friends car that he was involved in the accident, not a tree or plant, or a store near by. No, you go on a Police Car to insult the Police. Like there car is nothing and neither are they. I'm a retired Police Officer & if someone did that to My 8 hour 35 minute Rolling Office where I sit and do a TON OF PAPER WORK, put victims of crimes inside to take them Home or worse to the Hospital and once in awhile Deliver a BABY!!! OF COURSE THAT IDIOT GOT LOCKED UP!!! I'M SURE HE WAS TRYING TO CONVINCE THE POLICE OFFICER HE DID NOTHING WRONG!! FOR REAL???? HE'S LUCKY HE DIDN'T GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!! JERK!!! N.Y.P.D.'s FINEST!!! OLD SCHOOL.... A LITTLE COMMON SENSE & RESPECT GOES A LONG WAY!!
