What would have happened if Stephen King was arrested for his dreams when he was a kid?

Allen Lee is an honors student and future Marine who was given an assignment to write anything he wanted with no censorship. He wrote about a dream with violence, sex and other disturbing images. In the essay Lee even said that he made the dream up for writing purposes, but none of that mattered. He was arrested and charged with two counts of disorderly conduct. The second count was due to his scaring a first year teacher that she might inspire the first shooting at that school.

He says he was encouraged to exaggerate by his teacher for the assignment. How many of our great writers would be charged with disorderly conduct for putting disturbing thoughts down on paper?
