What Constitutes Disorderly Conduct?
Because Miami is known as a city for fun and upbeat people and lifestyle, disorderly conduct is a common offense. This charge is given by officers for a variety of actions and behaviors. One or more of these behaviors may be present, and if complained by nearby observers, can quickly lead police to deliver this charge.
- Disorderly conduct includes:
- Public intoxication
- Brawling or fighting
- Indecent or offensive conduct
- Indecent or offensive language
While these behaviors may be common, it is absurd to believe it automatically qualifies for a criminal charge. There is much room for misunderstanding and this is vital in defending against this charge.
