Lawyer Arrested For Going Without Pants In Bar

Lawyer Arrested For Going Without Pants In Bar

Being told to put your pants on seems like it should be an oxymoron, but a Florida lawyer found out the hard way that there’s a time and a place to ditch your pants, and that wasn’t in a bar after midnight. When an officer saw the lawyer without his pants, he told him it was against the law to be without his pants in public and gave him five minutes to put them back on or face arrest.

What happened?

A Tampa-based lawyer was arrested for going to a bar without pants and refusing to leave. When asked by the bartender, Aren’t you ashamed? the lawyer replied, No. The man (who is also an attorney) was given two options: either put on his pants or be escorted out. The lawyer chose the latter and was arrested by the police. He faces charges of trespassing, disorderly intoxication, and obstruction of justice.

His arrest report states that he refused to leave Olde Pink House, a bar in downtown Tampa, despite being given multiple warnings by management. A spokesperson for Olde Pink House said: We are shocked and saddened to hear about [the lawyer’s] behavior.

We’re grateful to our staff for handling it appropriately. The manager of Olde Pink House did not respond when asked if any action was taken against other patrons who were also without pants or if women were allowed to go without pants.

What do you think? Some people have drawn comparisons between his arrest and #FreeTheNipple, an ongoing campaign to end laws that prohibit women from being topless in public places (which is legal for men). What do you think?

Was this arrest legal?

Yes, this arrest was legal. Florida has a law that is uncommon but not unheard of in the United States that makes it illegal to wear pants in a bar. The law is also unofficially known as the no pants law, and it has been in effect since 1997. Under F.S. 860.10, a person

who knowingly wears pants (or any other clothing item) in a bar is guilty of an offense punishable by a fine or imprisonment for up to 60 days if they are over the age of 18. This law does not apply to people under 18 years old, so there are exceptions for children caught wearing clothes inside bars before they turn 18 years old.

Recently, a lawyer in Florida was arrested for wearing pants in a bar. He wore denim shorts to court and changed into his jean shorts before heading to a nearby bar. The bartenders told him he couldn’t have shorts in their establishment because they were enforcing city law against going without pants. The lawyer allegedly called them f***ing morons and refused to leave, leading to his arrest. So while wearing shorts alone is legal, you can’t go without your pants in bars where alcohol is served.

What are the lawyer’s defenses?

The lawyer’s defense for his actions is that he was not wearing any clothes, but rather a cape, at the time of the arrest. However, this does not change the fact that he was not wearing pants in a bar.

His story about being an imperial wizard seems to be of no relevance to his refusal to wear pants in a public establishment. The prosecution has offered him one-year probation if he agrees to wear pants in bars during the length of his probation. This is likely because they do not want this incident on their record and don’t see it as justifiable enough to convict him of indecent exposure, which would require more than showing up naked and refusing to put on pants when asked.

His attorney has advised that he would like to resolve this with an alternative plea of ‘not guilty and will be entering a defense of having been unable to wear pants at the time because he was suffering from some kind of medical condition.

The investigation into his story about being an imperial wizard will be an important part of determining whether or not he had reasonable medical grounds for his actions. If they can prove that wearing pants was more damaging than going without pants, then they may have enough evidence to get him off on medical grounds. If they can’t, then he will likely face a misdemeanor charge and have to enter a plea.

In some states, you are not required to appear in court unless you have already been served personally with a summons.
