This offense is pretty much like it sounds. It is against the law to be in a public place and to be intoxicated. However, the level of intoxication is different from, say, a DWI. With a PI, a person has to be intoxicated to a level where he is a danger to himself or others. It is a class C misdemeanor, but it is referred to as an “alcohol related contact”. This fact can have effects on some other things for an individual.
These offenses involve a more serious event than just a DWI. They are DWI's that also result in an accident that seriously injures someone or results in the death of someone. These are very serious offenses. The law states that if there is an accident involved in a DWI, then the police can transport the alleged offender to a facility, usually a hospital, where a specimen of blood can be drawn for the person in order to determine the level of intoxication at a later date by the use of a scientific test.
This is a class C misdemeanor charge. Even though it is minor in grade, those who receive these citations should still try to keep the offense off of their records. If other, more serious alcohol-related offenses occur in the future, the PI won’t come up and complicate matters with the perception that there is a drinking problem.
