The best thing you can do is to hire a good criminal defense lawyer. Your lawyer will know how to best defend you on the charge. Disorderly conduct has nothing to do with whose property you smashed or struck, it is for making a scene, or not acting in the way that a reasonable person would act.

An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.

The Michigan statute that defines "Disorderly Person" is MCL 750.167 - you can find that statute on the internet. You may have a good case from a defense standpoint - I would strongly recommend you retain a Criminal Defense Attorney to effectively present all your arguments. Your conduct does not appear to easily fit under any of the categories itemized under MCL 750.167.
