Chapter 10.10 Offenses Against Peace and Order
No person may commit any of the following acts within the pedestrian skywalk system or within any pedestrian mall:
Sit, kneel, lounge, lie or otherwise recline upon floors or stairs.
Stand upon any radiator, seat or other fixture.
Commit any act which tends to create or incite, or creates or incites, an immediate breach of the peace. Such conduct includes without limitation:
Obscene language and noisy or boisterous conduct tending to cause a breach of the peace; and
Personally abusive epithets, or words or language of an offensive, disgusting or insulting nature, which epithets, words or language when addressed to the ordinary citizen are, as a matter of common knowledge, inherently likely to provoke a violent reaction of fear, anger or apprehension.
Stand, stop or otherwise linger in such a manner as to obstruct or impede or tend to obstruct or impede the free passage of pedestrians through the area. If the impediment or obstruction is caused by the size of a particular group of persons, all persons within the group are equally subject to this section.
Whenever any peace officer observes a person committing any of the acts enumerated in this section or has probable cause to believe that a person has committed any of the said acts, the officer shall order the person to refrain from doing the proscribed conduct.
