My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
My friend and I were drinking at another friends house, things got heated, and there was a minor scuffle in his front room.
The police came and arrested me, as well as the friend that was with me, helping me restrain my crazy friend (the leasee). He refused to press any charges or complaints or anything, so they arrested us for public intoxication and we spent the night in jail.
We weren't in public, we were in a private residence that he rents, and neither of us were given field sobriety, breathalyzer, or blood tests. We didn't leave the house until the police required us to.
We were both very cooperative during questioning, neither admitted drinking nor anything else. Just being casual.
Is there any way this can hold up in court? I really don't want anything on my record. I had a DUI a year ago that I'm hoping to get expunged.
Thank you for your help.
