Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
What you can expect to happen is you can first deny being drunk and ask the prosecutor for a dismissal. Sometimes, in these cases the officer does not show up and the prosecutor will simply dismiss the case because it is not worth their time to fight over. The other thing that can happen if this is a first offense is they will offer you a fine and a deferred prosecution and if you have no other cases in 6 months or 12 months, your case will be dismissed. It is very rare they will push this for a misdemeanor conviction to be on your record, it is too minor and they have more important things to fight.
