There are many instances when being drunk in England and Wales is illegal. Some examples are below:
However, being drunk when behaving unreasonably is unlikely to result in police being involved. The police may become involved if the person who is drunk can no longer act in a reasonable manner. If this is the case, the police will either send the drunk person on their way or place them in a holding cell until they are sober.
The drunk person may be cautioned, issued a Penalty Notice for Disorder, or bailed to appear at court. If taken to court, the drunk person may face a conditional discharge, a maximum fine of £1,000, an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) or a drinking banning order (DBO).
