1. A jail cell where someone is held until they sober up. Usually you will have quite a few people in those kind of jail cells and the cell is filthy and disgusting, worse than any other holding cell in the jail.
1. That Dude ended up in the Drunk Tank and took a lickin' from some other drunk in there.

Chiefly US slang. Police custody cell, in particular, where the drunk and disorderly are held until sober.
