Default DUI on a golf cart in Florida, off the street?

Does a first DUI in Florida have any possible jail time?

Can I be validly arrested for driving a golf-cart while drunk on the neighbors property?
It was not a street, just his backyard. And he is not complaining.
It was a third neighbor that called the police.

The cop said I would be receiving papers.

I wish to inform you that police may take action against you if you were in violation of laws regarding driving under influence. In this regard offence will be committed if you were driving as law does not distinguish between private or public property for the purpose of driving. Section ยง316.193 (1)(a) specifically states if the person is driving or in actual physical control of a vehicle within this state. Hence as term used is within this state thus both public and private land is included.

Doesn't matter.

Hire an attorney.

In this case you can contest the papers by saying that you were on a private property and under no influence of alcohol. But before that you should be certain whether the case is for DUI or trespass.

DUI can apply to any motorized vehicle.
My neighbor got a DUI while operating a backhoe.
