Disorderly Conduct - Breach of the Peace Defenses in Florida

  • Loudness, Annoyance, Belligerence: This defense can be used when the defendant displays conduct, such as yelling or cursing, which is merely loud, belligerent, or irritating, as it is insufficient to sustain a conviction for disorderly conduct.
  • Mere Profanity or Yelling at Police: When speech is coupled with non-verbal behavior which infringes on the ability of a police officer to fulfill his or duties, a conviction will be allowed to stand. However, if the defendant only engages in conduct where they merely use profane language or yell at an officer, this can be used as grounds for a defense.
