Drunk in public results in arrest

Danville police arrested a loud, staggering 48-year-old drunk woman at Meenar's Bar last week, according to police reports.

The Danville resident was arrested by police for allegedly being drunk in public at Meenar's Bar on Hartz Avenue on Saturday night, Feb. 24. A bar employee called the police at 11:50 p.m. when she was acting unruly, said Sgt. Troy Craig.

"She started creating a disturbance at the bar with other customers," he said.

The woman, who stands 4 feet 11 inches and was wearing a black and blue dress at the time of her arrest, was grabbing hats off people's heads and refusing to give them back, according to reports. When Danville Officer Kevin Briggs arrived at the scene, she was unable to stand or walk without any assistance, Craig said.

Her alcohol blood level was .22, according to reports.

She was taken to Martinez Detention Facility, Craig said.
