"Paddy Wagon" is a historic euphemism for a police van or wagon with room for multiple culprits in a secured rear section.
No, the paddy wagon was not originated from police saying "Patty, get the wagon." The word originated from patrol wagon and got shortened to paddy wagon.
Patricia Bellemore goes by Patty Wagon.
The Irish immigrants were still being stereotyped. Irish were the drinkers and were the ones who needed the paddy wagon more so than others, according to the stereotype. I thought I heard the name was "Patty wagon", Patty as in Patrick, a good Irish name. It was later called paddy.
Como tiene el pelo Patty? means 'How is Patty's hair?" Like is it long? Is it black? Is it brown? Is it short? etc..

It means to be sober. If you fall off the wagon you have begun drinking again/relapsed.
