Public Intoxication Attorney in Knoxville
Have you ever been out with friends having a good time, maybe up in Gatlinburg at the moonshine distilleries, or walking back from a UT football game? If an officer were to think you were intoxicated when walking by or because he was called to the scene for a disturbance, you could be charged with public intoxication (PI). PI is not limited to alcohol, you can receive a public intoxication for being under the influence of drugs as well.
Public intoxication is a class C misdemeanor. Though the charge can escalate quickly and change into a DUI if you are near your car or sitting in your car.
