When police managed to wake him, he started shouting.
He told officers: "Get off me, leave me alone," prosecutor Jonathan Coombes said.
When he got out of the car, he was unsteady on his feet, and his speech was slurred, Swansea Magistrates' Court heard.
Laura Sherwood, rep- resenting Beer, said he had been drinking at a party at a friend's house the night before.
She said he had been passing his friend's house and had asked if he could stay in the car until he sobered up.
Mrs Sherwood said: "He attempted to walk home but has passed his friend's house."
"He's somewhat disorientated and behaves in a disorderly manner," she added.
"He can only show remorse to the court by attempting to enter a guilty plea at the earliest opportunity," she added.
Beer has a previous conviction for a public order offence.
Judge Vivian Manning-Davies said: "There's nothing wrong with going to a party and nothing wrong with taking a drink but when you get in a state, especially when people were trying to help you, the police and the court have to take a dim view.
He added: "The paramedics and the police are people who have a difficult job to do and they were trying to help you."
He fined Beer £50, costs of £85 and a £15 victim surcharge.
