Legal Question in DUI Law in Virginia

public swearing/intoxigation

my daughter was arrested for public swearing/intoxigation. should she get a lawyer and go to court or just pay the fine? also she was told that they video taped her when the took her to prison? why would they do that? also they had her sign papers when she first got there instead of waiting until she know what she was signing to? is that legal? she was at a football game. not driving. I just didn't know which area of law this falls under.

thank you,
