- Using profane language or gestures in a public area
- Creating a lot of noise or a terrible smell in a public place or near someone else’s home
- Displaying or shooting a gun in a public place — you don’t have to actually hit anything
- Peeping into someone’s home or a private area, such as a public restroom or shower stall
- Verbally abusing or threatening someone, which can also lead to an assault charge
- Fighting in public
