The only thing I would worry about is if you damaged the parking pawl inside the transmission. Its dangerous for everyone to drive drunk one of my brothers friends killed a whole family because he was driving drunk. He is in a wheel chair now and has been in jail since the 1980's.

Probably a loud clunk?It doesnt mean there was damage as long as park works and there are no unusual transmission noises I wouldn't really worry about it.
