AGO Opinions with Topic: INTOXICATION IN PUBLIC PLACE OR PRIVATE PLACE
AGO 1950 No. 363 >  October 6, 1950
MOTOR VEHICLES - INTOXICATION IN PUBLIC PLACE OR PRIVATE PLACE - PASSENGER THEREIN
MOTOR VEHICLES ‑- INTOXICATION IN PUBLIC PLACE OR PRIVATE PLACE ‑- PASSENGER THEREIN There is no statutory crime in merely being an intoxicated passenger in a private car which is parked or operated on a public highway.  Facts and circumstances, however, such as obscenity or disturbance of the public peace would bring the passenger within the purview of the prohibition of being intoxicated in a public place.
