Re: Drunk in Public but No Court Date
Most counties do not pursue PC647(f) arrests unless they are against repeat offenders. Most the time they are dropped pursuant to PC 849(b) and deemed a detention only - this is probably what happened in your case.
You can always check with the DA's office and the court to double check, but if they did not release you with a citation and told you that no charges were pending, you should be home free.
