Public Intoxication vs. OWI Endangerment
Tin Thang v. State
Distinguishes OWI and Public Intoxication in that, for the OWI offense, endangerment (a Class A Misdemeanor) cannot be inferred from intoxication alone; in other words, the defendant must be operating a vehicle in a manner that endangered himself or others. The Court affirms public intoxication conviction, on the basis of the defendant’s presence while intoxicated with a car at a gas station supporting an inference that the defendant operated the vehicle while intoxicated and thus committed the public intoxication element of endangering himself or others.
Gaddie v. State
To avoid conflict with the Fourth Amendment…the statute defining Resisting Law Enforcement by fleeing after being ordered to stop must be construed to require that a law enforcement officer’s order to stop be based on reasonable suspicion or probable cause.
