This past weekend I was arrested for Public Intoxication in

This past weekend I was arrested for Public Intoxication in San Marcos, Texas. I got disconnected from my group and did not have my phone on me to find anyone so I started walking down the street. I was stopped by some officers and when I couldn't tell them where I needed to go (I said I would find my way) they arrested me. I was held in county for about 30 or so hours before I could see a judge. I was released without bail but was given a form stating I would be evaluated for mental illness. I'd like to have the charge dropped, and also avoid paying such a fee, how should I go about handling this?

I was arrested for DUI in California last weekend. I have no priors. I was required to sign a form in order to be released on my own recognizance. One of the stipulations is that I'm not supposed to leave California without consent of the court. I have travel arrangements to see family in Washington this weekend that cannot be changed. Is there any legal way for me to visit my family?
