To modify what Mr. Fooks wrote, sometime getting off the line isn't possible (staircase). Luckily, he had drank enough to forgive my lack of experience and skill. I did manage to take his balance, and it was enough to save my butt
In a situation where there isn't much room and the drunken fool is pushing against your chest, it seems to me to be better to grab his wrist, trap his palm against your chest, turn 180, and do hiji-kime (otherwise known as wake gatame in judo). You wind up in a straightforward submission without the risk of doing more permanent injury that he might incur if you send him flying. Just a thought.
