Public Intoxication – California Penal Code 647(f)
Orange County/Los Angeles Drunk in Public Attorney
If you have been arrested for being drunk in public, call the Law Offices of Nam Q. Doan today. Public Intoxication is a misdemeanor classified as disorderly conduct under California Penal Code 647(f).
Public intoxication is committed if you are found in any public place under the influence of alcohol, drugs, controlled substances, or any combination of each. Being drunk in public also requires that you are unable to exercise care for your own safety or the safety of others, or in the alternative, you interfere or obstruct the free use of any street, sidewalk, or other public way.
This means that if you are drunk in public and you are at risk of causing harm to yourself or others, you can be arrested for public intoxication. Alternatively, if you are passed out drunk on a sidewalk, you can be arrested for public intoxication.
There are several drunk in public defenses available. It is important to speak with a public intoxication attorney to know what defenses you may have. Even if you think you may not have a good defense, your case may still be worth fighting because it is still the prosecution’s duty to prove you were actually under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
