    James’s Answer

    I doubt you will get any jail time. If this is your first offense you will most likely qualify for a diversion program which, upon successful completion, will dismiss the charges against you and remove the arrest from your record.

    James’s Answer

    If you paid the entire bond yourself you will get that money back when your case closes. As far as arresting you we need to know more. Most people who are arrested for public intoxication are doing a lot more than simply tying their shoes. If this is your first offense you should qualify for a diversion program which, upon successful completion, will dismiss the charges against you and remove the arrest from your record.
