Bennell, 20, was arrested by Western Australian police in his home town of Mandurah 60km south of Perth after his alleged involvement in a New Year's Eve brawl.
The Suns confirmed the charge in a short statement on Wednesday.
"The GC Suns can confirm that Harley Bennell has been charged with disorderly behaviour in a public place and failure to obey an order given by an officer following an incident overnight in Mandurah, Western Australia," the statement said.
"As this is a police matter the club is not in a position to make further comment."
Bennell's arrest and charge for disorderly conduct follows annual AFL leave misbehaviour from three experienced Melbourne players at the Boxing Day cricket Test as well as Collingwood rookie Marley Williams.
Williams, 19, was also back in his WA home town in the state's deep south-west at Albany when charged with an alleged assault, while Demons James Frawley, Jeremy Howe and Lynden Dunn were escorted from the MCG after unruly behaviour on the opening day of Australia's Second Test against Sri Lanka.
Bennell, who was drafted to Gold Coast form WA as the second pick overall at the 2010 national draft, was released on bail in the early hours of New Year's Day.
Sources close to the skilful indigenous star claim Bennell was actually trying to break up the fight that led to his arrest.
Bennell almost walked out on the AFL's second youngest franchise at the end of 2011 when he had managed just one season of his standard two-year draftees contract.
He was persuaded to stay by Suns football management and turned in a breakout season in 2012 when he finished runner-up to AFL superstar Gary Ablett in club fairest-and-best voting.
Bennell is an at times electrifying talent and creative in his explosive skills.
He was one of only three Suns to play all 22 senior games in 2012 and has now made 36 of a possible 44 appearances since his debut in the outfit's inaugural 2011 season.
