[2009] EWHC 554 (Admin)

The offence of being drunk and disorderly required proof that the defendant was drunk, that he was in a public place, and that he was guilty of disorderly behaviour: there was no mens rea requirement in relation to disorderly behaviour. An appeal against conviction on the basis that the prosecution had failed to show specific intent was hopelessly misconceived.

DC (Goldring LJ, Sweeney J)
