If you assault someone trying to drink and drive who is very drunk in the name of saving them and other people would you get off the hook?

The police would prefer it if you simply reported it.

You could TRY to claim defense of others, which is legally the same as self defense. I predict a 0.01% chance the court will buy that defense.
You would also have to show there was no peaceful way to handle the situation, such as calling 911.

There is no law allowing you to assault someone to prevent them from doing something illegal.

It would depends quite a bit on the specifics of the situation.

What if they were toking on a blunt; would you STILL kick their azz?????

Probably, maybe you could say you were making a citizen's arrest and the drunk resisted. You could always say you were just defending yourself from the drunk.
