Being drunk in public is no longer a crime. If the State cannot prove that you breached the peace or engaged in dangerous or annoying behavior, you cannot be convicted. The Indiana Supreme Court held that an intoxicated person sleeping at a bus stop, when no one was present except his brother and a police officer, would not annoy a reasonable person. Thus, the Court reversed the man’s public intoxication conviction. Arrested for public intoxication in Lafayette, Indianapolis, or Fort Wayne? Call Gibson Law Office.
