CASA GRANDE, AZ (AP) -

Arizona's State Parks director has been convicted of misdemeanor disorderly conduct for arguing with and shoving a man at a festival in Florence earlier this year.

Bryan Martyn was found guilty Thursday afternoon in Florence Municipal Court.

The Casa Grande Dispatch says the former Pinal County supervisor was ordered to pay an $813 fine after the judge held a non-jury trial.

Martyn argued with Christopher "Shon" White of San Tan Valley. White had criticized Martyn on his website.

Florence Town Attorney James Mannato says the exchange was loud and upsetting to bystanders and that's disorderly conduct. Defense lawyer Gary Husk argued both men's conduct may have been rude or offensive but it didn't qualify as seriously disruptive behavior.

Martyn says he's disappointed and hasn't decided if he will appeal.
