Yes. You can also be arrested if you are a drunk passenger, with a designated driver, and the police ask you to step out of the car. because then you are in public drunk. But if you don't you get arrested for resisting arrest. It makes no sense, but this happened to my brother.

According to ORC 2917.11
Public intoxication: When,

(a) A person commits the crime of public intoxication if he appears in a public place under the influence of alcohol, narcotics or other drug to the degree that he endangers himself or another person or property, or by boisterous and offensive conduct annoys another person in his vicinity.

(b) Public intoxication is a violation.

Yes, this also applies to prescription drugs.
