Many Florida residents enjoy the Fourth of July for the fantastic food, fun parties, and exciting fireworks that accompany the event. As they celebrate the birth of the nation, they partake in festivities that bring people together to enjoy each other's company and celebrate their freedom. Most celebrations conclude with good feelings and happy participants. Others may end with confrontations and accusations that can lead to calls to law enforcement officials and potential arrests.
A holiday arrest based on alleged criminal conduct can be damaging to a person's life on many levels. Not only may it threaten their capacity to keep a job, but it can also put significant strain on their relationships and families. It may impact them financially if their punishments involve fines, and it may cause them to spend time away from their loved ones if their sanctions involve jail time or imprisonment.
