Josh Brolin
rang in 2013 pretty hard ... getting popped for public intoxication on New Year's Day ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Brolin was arrested just before midnight on January 1 in Santa Monica. Brolin was booked into jail at 3:02 AM and then released at 7:14 AM.

Brolin was not given a citation for the arrest -- meaning he will not have to go to court over the incident and it is completely over.

Sources close to Brolin tell TMZ he was hanging out with a bunch of his guy friends that night and ended up having "too much fun."

We've all been there.

Public Intoxication is a useless charge and should be removed from the books. The cops legally could sit outside a bar and arrest just about everyone as they leave and charge them with public intoxication, it's a worthless charge and does nothing.

For those who would like to know the code for being arrested without having to go to court. 647 (f) is public intoxication charge and 849 (b) (1) is what allows law enforcement to release him w/o having to appear in court (Not charged).

They arrested him for his own safety and released him when he sobered up, no big deal. At least he wasn't driving at the time.
