What is disturbing the peace?

Disturbing the peace charges occur when a person infringes upon or frustrates someone else's right to peace. In most states, disturbing the peace convictions require that the person's conduct have a malicious purpose. If the disturbing the peace offense is charged as an infraction, it will not go on an individual's permanent record or show up on an employment background check.
