Galveston Public Intoxication Defense Lawyers

Skilled Legal Support for the Accused in Texas

In the state of Texas, you can be arrested and convicted for being intoxicated (otherwise known as drunk and disorderly) in public. Because of the subjective nature of what is considered “disorderly” or drunk, this law has come under criticism as an often-used form of harassment against Texans. Many individuals are arrested for public intoxication without a blood alcohol concentration or field sobriety tests based on the word of the arresting officer alone.

If you are facing a charge of public intoxication, you owe it to yourself to retain the services of a Galveston public intoxication defense attorney at Zendeh Del & Associates, PLLC. Our firm can get to work to determine the facts and look into any unlawful police procedure or other legal errors made that will work to your benefit.

Texas Public Intoxication Laws

The Texas law regarding public intoxication defines intoxication in two ways:

  • Having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher
  • Failing to have the normal use of your mental or physical faculties due to consuming alcohol or a controlled substance

Because of the second part of the definition, a breathalyzer test does not have to be used in order for a police officer to arrest and charge you. You can be arrested simply because the officer says you are intoxicated with no further proof than his “observation.”

A public intoxication is charged as a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500. While it may seem easier to just pay the fine and move on, doing so will give you a permanent criminal record which can prove damaging to future employment, housing, professional licenses, and other opportunities.
