Disorderly Conduct in Jacksonville

A police officer has many charges he can arrest you for, and a common arrest in Jacksonville Beach is Disorderly Conduct. In order to commit this crime, you have to commit an act that corrupts public morals, or outrage the sense of public decency, or affect the peace and quiet of people who may witness your behavior. Speech alone cannot support a conviction for this misdemeanor in Florida.

Just speaking or yelling cannot support this charge, but if your words incite or intend to incite others to breach the peace, that can be considered disorderly conduct.
