Checkpoints for the weekend of October 24th

Hi Ghouls and Goblins,

Happy almost Halloween everyone and with the ghouls, punch and adult tricks comes more police patrols, saturation patrols and an OVI checkpoint in Portage County on October 24, 2014. We will post the exact location and time as soon as we know it.

Four things I always tell me friends or random strangers at bar about OVI/DUI’s in Ohio

  1. If you get pulled over and you’ve had a few beers or glasses of wine. Never, never  admit to having a beer or one glass of wine with dinner . All this does is give the officer probable cause to continue his or her investigation into the possibility that you are operating a vehicle impaired. Cops are going to smell beer, say you have glassy eyes and slurred speech anyways so why give them any more ammunition?
  2. You never have to do field sobriety tests in the Ohio. This is a voluntary act and the test is subjective in nature. If you fail this test which 95% of sober people do, it will give the officer enough evidence to arrest you for an OVI and it will be harder for an OVI attorney to knock down you dui
  3. You can refuse the portable breathalyzer in Ohio with no punishment. To be clear this is device that most cops will have in their car. If you refuse the the breathalyzer at the station you will be facing an ALS suspension that varies in length depending on your particular set of facts. (I will address this in a later post).
  4. If you find yourself arrested for an DUI in Ohio, give me a ring. I will explain everything to you and the consultation is always free


The Ohio State Highway Patrol in conjunction with Kent Police Department announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. tonight on State Route 59, in Portage County.


A “no refusal” checkpoint where drivers will be forced to stop and potentially submit to having their blood taken on the side of the road by law enforcement authorities is planned for Clark County, Ohio on October 24.

“Every car will be checked to ensure that drivers are not impaired. If there is sufficient probable cause to believe that a driver is operating a vehicle while impaired, law enforcement will seek a blood search warrant from a “neutral and detached magistrate,

My recommendation would be stay out of Clark County tonight


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Two sobriety checkpoints are planned in the northwest Columbus.

The first one will be held on Bethel Road, east of Kenny Road from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday.

The second will be on Sawmill Road, north of I-270, from 11:30 p.m. Friday until 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.
