Can I really get arrested for being drunk in my own apartment?

There was a noise complaint in my building last night and the cops came and knocked on my door. I had no more than 10 people over drinking and playing games. I told the cop we'd keep it down. My buddy got a little rowdy with the cop who then said if he had to come back for another complaint he'd arrest us for being too drunk? Is that even an illegal thing in my own place?

    This is possible. If you were too loud, you could be arrested for disturbing the peace.
