Disorderly Intoxication Defenses
- First Amendment Activity: One defense to Disorderly Intoxication is when the conduct the defendant is alleged to have committed is considered a constitutionally protected activity. Conduct consisting of words or statements that are non-threatening or disturbing the peace is insufficient for a conviction of disorderly intoxication in Florida.
- Private Property: If a defendant is charged based on an event that occurred in a public setting, the location of the incident must actually qualify as a ‘public place’ for a conviction to be upheld. If the defendant was charged under the second formulation of disorderly intoxication (involving public place) and the event occurred on private property, a conviction will not stand.
