On March 1, 1969, Jim Morrison was arrested after a Doors show at the Dinner Key Auditorium (now the Coconut Grove Convention Center).

According to the police report, Morrison was charged with a number of legal infractions:
I. Lewd and lascivious behavior (felony)
II. Indecent exposure (misdemeanor)
III. Open profanity (misdemeanor)
IV. Drunkeness (misdemeanor)

Accounts of the what happened that night vary greatly according to witnesses. Morrison was acquitted of lewd and lascivious behavior, but was found guilty of indecent exposure and profanity, and he was sentenced to eight months in prison.

Morrison appealed and remained free on bail. He left for Paris with girlfriend Pamela in early 1971, where he died on July 3, 1971.
