THE threat of being arrested may exist in your own home as a result of intense arguing.
A user took to AVOO in 2018 to inquire about the likelihood of being arrested in their own home.
The concerns stemmed from the user fighting often with their grandmother, which could be disturbing the peace of other residents in their apartment building.
The user explained that their grandmother “like[d] to use [the] police to control me.”
This user reassured readers that they do not yell anything threatening, but often curse, and wonder if this behavior can lead to arrest.
A few legal experts responded to the query offering helpful advice.
Trevor Clement, who wrote online he was a criminal defense attorney, addressed the concerns about disturbing the peace saying, “If you’re making so much noise that it disturbs the other residents of the building, that could qualify as disturbing the peace.”
He continued on to say that if the grandmother shouts back at the user, she could theoretically be charged with disturbing the user’s peace.
Another criminal defense attorney, Daniel Daly, joined the conversation.
He said, “If the arguing rises to the level of threatening or assaulting your grandmother, then yes.”

A third criminal defense attorney named Pamela Morris, from Boston, reiterated these arguments.
She argued that the grandmother calling the police would incriminate the grandmother just the same as the user.
Instead, she wrote the grandmother may be using the police as a fear tactic because only intense arguing, disturbing the peace, or an eventual assault or threat could lead to an arrest.
