What are Disorderly Conduct, Drunkenness, Loitering & Prowling, and House Party Criminal Charges?
Disorderly Conduct is unreasonable behavior which is likely to cause serious offense or annoyance to other people.
Drunkenness, or disorderly intoxication, is a catch-all crime used by law enforcement to arrest drunk and unruly people.
Loitering and Prowling occurs in Fort Lauderdale when a person maintains a suspicious presence in an unusual time, place or manner, and under circumstances that indicate an impending threat to the safety of persons or property.
Open House Party is a criminal charge based on a person allowing minors to possess or consume drugs or alcohol at a party authorized at the person’s residence, or where the person fails to take reasonable action to prevent minors from possessing or consuming drugs or alcohol.
