Can a person be arrested for public intoxication on their own property.

Question Details: police were out at a neighbors house in a rural area of california on a separate matter. I was on my property, I had been drinking. I did not interfere with the police, but after questioning me regarding a different matter, they arrested me for public intoxication. Is this legal, on my own property, when I was not a public nuisance?
