Public Intoxication Charges
Downtown Athens is lined with restaurants, bars, and clubs. Police on bicycles and foot heavily patrol this area, on the lookout for drunk drivers, bar fights, and other activity. In the process, individuals displaying any questionable behavior may be charged with public drunkenness/intoxication or pedestrian under the influence (PUI): an argument on the street; using a fake ID; or operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
At The Lariscy Law Firm, we understand the nature of public intoxication charges and what it means for those facing charges. We work to ensure our clients understand the charges they are facing, and then help them seek the outcome that will have the least impact on their lives.
