Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly conduct is a broad charge that is sometimes used as a catch-all charge by arresting officers attempting to assert authority in efforts to maintain order or restore control of a situation. In some cases, offenders were merely in the wrong place at the wrong time. In other cases, the alleged offender is not even sure how they violated the law.

The state of Florida defines disorderly conduct (also commonly referred to as “breach of peace”) as:

“Whoever commits such acts as are of a nature to corrupt the public morals, or outrage the sense of public decency, or affect the peace and quiet of persons who may witness them, or engages in brawling or fighting, or engages in such conduct as to constitute a breach of the peace or disorderly conduct, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree.”

It is easy to see from this definition alone how subjective this law is. Disorderly conduct has many gray areas and is sometimes stretched to include rude or offensive, but not criminal behavior.

Disorderly intoxication is a slightly harder charge to defend, and thus requires greater preparation and strong legal representation. Criminal defense attorney Terrance R. Rooth can provide both. A disorderly intoxication violation also carries misdemeanor charges and thus should be handled seriously.
