Legal Question in Immigration Law in Virginia

I became a resident in 2005 and about two years ago I got detained for being drunk in public. I went to court and I was charged for being drunk in public. After that about 9 months ago I was detained once more for being drunk in public however the case was dismissed. These are the only two incidents I've had with cops in my life. I would like to apply for citizenship however i'm afraid because of these incidents I may not meet the Good moral character requirement. Is there anything I can do to fulfill the Good moral character requirement? I don't know what to do at this point.

As far as I am aware, the offense (DIP) which you've referenced has

little or nothing to do with fullfilling the good moral character criterion

which is required for qualifying for naturalized U.S citizenship
