Colorado's Harassment statute is very broad and contains many different subsections. More often than not, it is charged by alleging that a person has the intent to "harass, annoy, or alarm another person" and does one of the following:
Strikes, shoves, kicks, or otherwise touches a person or subjects him to physical contact;
In a public place directs obscene language or makes an obscene gesture to or at another person;
Makes a telephone call or causes a telephone to ring repeatedly, whether or not a conversation ensues, with no purpose of legitimate conversation;
Makes repeated communications at inconvenient hours that invade the privacy of another and interfere in the use and enjoyment of another's home or private residence or another private property;
Repeatedly insults, taunts, challenges, or makes communications in offensively coarse language to, another in a manner likely to provoke a violent or disorderly response.
Harassment is typically charged as a class three misdemeanor.
