I'm 19 and drunk, should I be arrested, or am I awesome?

The contention is flawed horribly, as detail varies the response to the issue.

If my opponent was/is publically intoxicated in Victoria, Australia, then the Summary Offences Act 1966[1] says he should be. Also, in the UK, if you are drunk in a public place, the 1872 liqour acct[2] states he should also be arrested. On top of this, I have reasonable suspicion that, while drunk, my opponent was committing the act of trolling, which is punishable with the banhammer if a first offence, or being laughed at in a public place, if trolling from said person is residential.


Also, the contention that he is instead "awesome" is mutually inclusive; he could be sober and still not awesome (being drunk and awesome from this guy is just... no, he isn't awesome). Also, stealing my image is fraud, and punishable by me calling you a phoney! A BIG FAT PHONY!

Being arrested and being awesome are not mutually exclusive.
