Can you be charged with public intoxication on your own property?

I was in my front yard, enjoying a sunny day, and having a few drinks. I would say this took place about a week or so ago. I was simply minding my own, tinkering with the front yard. I don't know if it was my neighbors or a passerby, but the police showed up all of a sudden on a call of public intoxication and disruption. Now mind you, I have not left my property since I had the first drink, and I was being quiet. The officer said I noted to be yelling and tossing things about. I was asked to put my drink down and place my hands on the hood of his car for a routine search. The officer wrote me a ticket for public intoxication and ordered me to return into my home. Now I would like to know, can an officer of the law, come onto my property, without consent, and issue me a public intoxication ticket on my own property?
