Our team of Police Station Representation solicitors can assist from initial questioning to any appearances required at magistrates’ court, offering 24/7 legal assistance.

Understanding Drunk and Disorderly Behaviour

Drunk and disorderly behaviour entails being intoxicated in a public place and behaving disruptively. Disorderly behaviour is broadly defined as causing a public disturbance, at the discretion of law enforcement.

Punishments for Drunk and Disorderly Behaviour

Punishments for drunk and disorderly behaviour vary based on the perceived level of disturbance caused. In some cases, punishments may be administered without formal charges or court appearances, including:

  • Official caution
  • Fixed penalty notice
  • Conditional discharge
  • Fine of up to £1,000
  • Anti-social Behaviour Order (ASBO)
  • Drinking Banning Order (DBO).

Each of these outcomes could significantly impact your future, including potential job loss with a court conviction. Therefore, seeking legal representation at the time of arrest is essential.
