Engaging in abusive conduct or actions; penalty.  Provides that a person who, in the presence or hearing of another, engages in abusive conduct or actions under circumstances reasonably calculated to provoke a breach of the peace is guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor. Current law punishes the use of abusive language, but does not address conduct. The bill also provides that a second or subsequent violation committed within three years is punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor. Read the Bill »
