If you behave in a disorderly or offensive manner, or fight in a public place or police station then you may face a charge under Section 7 of the Summary Offences Act 1953.
Disorderly behaviour is considered behaviour that would result in a substantial breach of decorum that interferes with the peace and comfort of others in or near the vicinity.
Offensive behaviour includes behaviour that is highly offensive according to recognised standards of common propriety. It also includes threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour.
As standards in society change the words and actions that may constitute the above may also change.
Sometimes a person is arrested for the above charge, but police can issue an expiation notice.
