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

Yes, this also applies to prescription drugs.
