The Dallas and Ft Worth regions, including Addison, are renowned for their recreational opportunities including beer and wine related attractions and events. From the Grapevine Wine Trail featuring nine popular wineries and vineyards to the over 30 Texas breweries and the ever popular Big Texas Beer Fest, alcohol is often just a part of life in this popular recreational area.
Even a vacation which is not focused on alcohol may still include a glass or two of a local wine or beer, which if done in moderation, will not likely lead to any trouble. The trouble for many comes when 1 or 2 glasses becomes 6 or 7. Even if you are not driving, there are many other alcohol related citations relating to consumption in Texas which may cause you problems including a public intoxication charge.

Public intoxication or a PI is sometimes known as drunken or disorderly conduct. In Texas, a PI conviction is a class C misdemeanor and is punishable by up to $500 in fines. Even if it is a first conviction, this fairly “minor” infraction can have long lasting impacts on your life later on. Further, more additional fines and penalties may arise for those who find themselves convicted a second or third time. Any DWI or public intoxication charge can be serious and result in significant punishments. For this reason, it is important that you consult an attorney who is familiar with these laws and the defense of these charges in Texas.
