What exactly is Public Intoxication?

A public intoxication charge means that a person appeared in a public place under the influence of alcohol, narcotics, or other drugs to the point that he or she put themself or another person in danger by an overexcited and offensive act that annoyed another person in the area. Public intoxication is also known as "drunken or disorderly conduct". Alabama classifies public intoxication as a violation. Violations can carry up to 30 days in jail and a fine.
