Sobriety has its value

I understand that it's always nice to kick back, relax, and have a few drinks, but it's not always appropriate. Like, say, before your public drunkenness hearing:
A southeastern Pennsylvania man and woman seeking leniency on public drunkenness fines he hasn't paid have now been cited for public drunkenness in the judge's office. The pair visited District Judge Rodney Hartman's office in New Holland on Wednesday. They were responding to a warrant notice over fines the man owes for an October public drunkenness conviction. He said he didn't have money to pay.

Someone noticed that the two appeared drunk at the judge's office. Police gave Breathalyzer tests and say the two had blood-alcohol levels far above the legal limits for driving.
Yeah, see, the idea is to wait until after the judge has granted you leniency to party. Dumbasses.
