Any person who is intoxicated in public, whether such intoxication results from alcohol, narcotic drug or other intoxicant or drug of whatever nature, shall be guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.
At such time as the County opens a court-approved detoxification center, a law-enforcement officer may authorize the transportation, by law enforcement or otherwise, of public inebriates to such detoxification center in lieu of arrest; however, no person shall be involuntarily detained in such a center.
