you are sitting in your house drinking beer (and may be drunk) minding your own damn business and somebody breaks in and you shoot them.  Who goes to jail?

someone breaks into your home, and you shoot them and they live, then you did something wrong there.

Dunno about Cali, but we have Castle Doctrine here, so maybe a trip to the station, but I wouldn't expect spending the night or more in jail.

In California, if you shoot someone who breaks into your house, there is a legal presumption that your actions were reasonable.



Being drunk really has nothing to do with it.
