What am I being charged with officer?

This is tangentially related to Gates-gate but I thought it deserved its own thread. Probably not enough here for a GD post.

My opinion is this guy won’t get as much sympathy as Gates and we by the wording of the statute in the article the charges might stick.

I went to college with the guy arrested, Pepin Tuma. I didn’t know him very well, but you don’t forget a name like “Pepin Tuma.”

Seems more likely to me that he will get satisfaction from complaint, or that ultimately the law will be thrown out as too vague, but IANAL.

I have to admit, I would have found this hard to believe until recently. I could definitely get behind an effort to reform the apparent ridiculousness of disorderly conduct laws. No one should be arrested because they are expressing their distaste for the police, either collectivvely or individually.
