Public Consumption and Intoxication Charges Ruin Super Bowl Excitement

Phoenix is certainly showing off its perfect winter weather for the thousands of visitors it expects over the next few weeks. Temperatures have been enjoyable making all of the outdoor events even more memorable. The Super Bowl is arguably the biggest event of them all, not only the game itself, but all of the events leading up to the big day. There is no shortage of parties to attend if you are an out-of-towner or a local. Most of these events, if not all, will allow attendees to get excited for the biggest football game of the year while sipping on an alcoholic beverage of their choosing.

Always Take Care When Drinking

If you are going to partake in drinking at these events, be cautious of where, when, and how quickly you are consuming the alcohol. Police and security will be on high alert at all of the venues watching out for disruptive behavior. Police from the various jurisdictions will be issuing hundreds of citations for public consumption of alcohol and public intoxication. Drinking in public is a behavior you must keep in check. It is not enough to avoid drinking and driving; you can easily face misdemeanor criminal charges if you have too many drinks at one of these events or at a bar or restaurant.

Don’t Let One Mistake Ruin Your Life

Once you are drunk, it is hard to control your volume and your actions, calling attention to yourself. Security will have no issues contacting the police to come and control the situation, easily leading to an arrest for public consumption or public intoxication.
