In many Southern states, "public drunkenness" statutes apply any time you've visible from a public way. Front yard, porch, driveway... you can't drink or be drunk on that private property, because it's "public" for those purposes.That one was clearly contempt of cop. The dude did sound drunk, but if he was on private property, is that a crime?
