I'll need to know what state you were arrested in.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
in the state of Texas
Expert:  Allen M., Esq. replied 7 years ago.
Assuming that you are not a minor, Public Intoxication in Texas is a Class C Misdemeanor.

"An individual adjudged guilty of a Class C misdemeanor shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $500.00."

That's the max. I can't get any more specific than that, because the judge will decide based on a number of factors including how you behaved in jail, the testimony of the officer, etc.
