09.42.01 Disorderly Conduct
Josh 201604 KWP
I knew about:
a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally or knowingly:
2) makes an offensive gesture or display in a public place, and the gesture or display tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace;

I didn't know about:
(b) It is a defense to prosecution under Subsection (a)(4) that the actor had significant provocation for his abusive or threatening conduct.

So if someone "signifigantly provokes" you, it's ok to flip them off.

What prompted this? Are you secretly studying to become a lawyer while in NY?

6 days. :) :) :) :)

nah, this is all TX law... :) I don't remember how I got on the topic, but it's kinda cool. Some of the laws are poorly structured. There's not much consistancy among structures.
