Ohio woman too intoxicated to pick up boyfriend after OVI arrest

A 29-year-old woman in Plain Township ignored a law enforcement officer's advice to stay off the road after the sergeant detected her intoxication over the telephone. The sergeant had called her to come pick up her 23-year-old boyfriend, who had earlier been arrested for OVI after a traffic stop on Overhill Avenue. He had allegedly been speeding at 42 mph in 25 mph zone.

How you handle a traffic stop could have an impact on its outcome

Facing accusations for driving under the influence can be exceedingly intimidating. Perhaps an officer recently made the decision to pull you over for something as simple as a burnt-out tail light. While this might not lead to a traffic ticket, it could give the officer reason and time to further investigate any suspicions.

Checkpoints lead to 3 arrests

According to law enforcement authorities, checkpoints that were held on Ohio 128 in Ross Township and on Tylersville Road in West Chester Township on Sept. 15 resulted in three OVI arrests. Two of the arrests happened in West Chester Township while the remaining OVI arrest happened in Ross Township.

Between Friday and Monday, troopers took 845 drivers into custody on OVI charges. They also responded to 22 fatal motor vehicle crashes that killed 24 people.

Being involved in a routine traffic stop can be stressful enough on its own, and any additional charges may only add to the difficulty of the situation. Perhaps during a recent traffic stop, you were expecting to receive a warning or ticket for speeding, only to find yourself in handcuffs facing accusations for drunk driving.
