In Arizona threatening and intimidating is typically charged a class 1 misdemeanor and as such is subject to a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Although, in order to be held to answer for the charge of threatening and intimidating there must be evidence that the person threatened physical injury or property damage. The person’s actions and words may be used to establish a threat of physical violence. The statute also allows for public disturbances to be charged as threatening and intimidating such as causing the evacuation of a building. Threatening and intimidating can be a felony when it is related to organized crime or criminal street gang activity.
