A passing lorry driver reported seeing him and possibly hitting him with the rear-view mirror. The man was picked up by the police and taken to hospital for minor injuries in one hand, and then charged with ”recklessness in traffic” (vårdslöshet i trafik). I do not know how the case ended.

Sorry, I must have pasted the wrong link there. The road where the drunk man was is (mostly) motorway, so no walking there, drunk or not.

But yes, you could probably be charged with recklessness in traffic for stumbling around drunk on any road, especially if you manage to cause an accident.
