If I’m arrested for public intoxication and then released at the police station, what happens next?

We were at a house party and left to go to a bar. Pretty much everyone was really intoxicated. A cop stopped us because he saw one guy peeing in a bush. About 6 of us were arrested for public intoxication and then at the police station they talked to each of us and released us separately. What happens next? Will I have to go to court? It was really unclear when we left the station what would happen.

    If sounds as though you were warned and released without being charged. If you received a citation it will advise you of when you must appear in court. Otherwise, if you were formally charged a notice should be delivered to you advising you of your court date.
