     (5) in a public or private place, the person challenges another to fight or engages in fighting other than in self-defense;

     (6) the person recklessly creates a hazardous condition for others by an act which has no legal justification or excuse; or

     (7) the offender intentionally exposes the offender’s buttock or anus to another with reckless disregard for the offensive or insulting effect the act may have on that person.

 (b) As used in this section, “noise” is “unreasonably loud” if, considering the nature and purpose of the defendant’s conduct and the circumstances known to the defendant, including the nature of the location and the time of day or night, the conduct involves a gross deviation from the standard of conduct that a reasonable person would follow in the same situation. “Noise” does not include speech that is constitutionally protected.

 (c) Disorderly conduct is a class B misdemeanor.
