Examples of Disorderly Conduct

  • Disorderly Intoxication – Our client was a recent University of Tampa graduate who was arrested after being asked to leave a Tampa pub for disorderly intoxication. Our client was accused of disturbing others in the area; however, law enforcement did not get the names of any of the witnesses. Our client was also not asked to complete any breath or field sobriety tests. Due to this complete lack of evidence, we were able to convince the State to not file any charges against our client.

  • Disorderly Conduct – Our client was approached at the Hard Rock Casino by security who took her purse after receiving a report that there was a firearm in her purse. Our client had a valid concealed weapon permit and objected to the seizure of her purse. After claiming that she was disturbing the other patrons of the casino, our client was arrested for disorderly conduct. We took on the case and filed a motion to dismiss due to the fact that our client was simply objecting to unlawful conduct. All charges were dismissed.

In the state of Florida, disorderly conduct is also known as a breach of the peace. This is defined under § 877.93 of the 2014 Florida Statutes as the act of corrupting public morals, outraging public decency, affecting the peace and quiet of people in the area, or engaging in any sort of fight. In general, disorderly conduct is any type of behavior that law enforcement deems to be outside of decent behavior (ex: drunken brawls).

This misdemeanor can be punished with:

  • Monetary Fine of $500; and
  • Maximum Imprisonment of 60 Days
