Professional Soccer Player Arrested While Attempting to Re-Enter Nightclub 

Mason Stajduhar is a 26-year-old goalkeeper of the Orlando City Soccer Club. He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after an altercation directly outside Tier nightclub in Orlando. His wife was also arrested. The incident occurred around one in the morning after Mr. Stajduhar was ejected from the club. He reportedly attempted to reenter, despite the resistance of security.

What is Disorderly Conduct? 

Broadly defined, disorderly conduct is a legal term used to describe actions that disturb the public peace or general decorum. It can apply to a wide array of different behaviors—from fighting to making unreasonably loud noise to being excessively disruptive. The charge is commonly applied when a person’s behavior is deemed to interfere with the normal operation of society but does not necessarily otherwise involve serious criminal conduct. 

An Overview of Disorderly Conduct Charges in Florida 

Is disorderly conduct a misdemeanor or a felony? In Florida, the charge is typically classified as a second-degree misdemeanor criminal offense. Under state law (Florida Statute § 877.03), disorderly conduct is the “breach of the peace.” The law addressed conduct that corrupts public morals, outrages the sense of public decency, or affects the peace and quiet of persons who may witness them. Here are three key points to understand about the law in Florida:

  • Broad Application: The statute a wide range of disruptive behaviors, including fighting and loud arguing. In some ways, law enforcement officers used disorderly conduct as a “catch-all” offense.
  • The Penalties: A conviction for disorderly conduct is a serious offense. It is a second degree misdemeanor that may result in fines up to $500 and/or up to 60 days in jail.
  • Legal Defenses: You have the right to defend yourself against a disorderly conduct charge. Common defenses include the exercise of First Amendment rights and lack of intent.
