A few friends went out for drinks and one got belligerent and was walking in traffic so we all three got stopped. The obnoxious one wouldn't shut up and we all had been drinking so we all got drunk in public tickets. I really don't want a misdemeanor on my record but I was wondering if talking to the arresting officer would make a difference so I wont have to go to court. She told me to find a new friend (most definitely) and that she didn't want to arrest me and the other guy because we were trying to look out for him but we were all together and they had to. Also does it matter if the law section cited is not correct on the ticket? Everything I have found doesn't match the section.
