One of the least serious offences to come before the Courts is the offence of being drunk and disorderly in public. If you are accused of this, the Police have to show that you were drunk in public, and that you have acted in a disorderly manner.
This offence can be committed easily by anyone, whether they have just had a single night out and drunk too much and got into an argument, or by someone who has a more long-term problem with alcohol misuse. No matter what your situation, it can still be a worrying situation if you are accused of a criminal offence, and are arrested and kept in custody to appear before the Court.
The offence of being drunk and disorderly in public is a summary only offence and so can only be heard by the Magistrates Court. As the offence is relatively minor it cannot carry a prison sentence, and the maximum a Court can do is impose a fine or financial penalty.
