Police arrested a man on suspicion of being drunk in public in the parking lot behind a Castro Street bar, about an hour before last call for St. Patrick's Day libations.
He was unsteady on his feet and showed other signs of intoxication, Jaeger said.
Jaeger said police attempted to find a friend of the man -- someone who might be able to take care of him, because he was "unable to care for himself." They couldn't find anyone to help him, however.
The man, identified as 24-year-old East Palo Alto resident Elvin Posada, was booked into jail on a charge of public drunkenness.
