Brown Law Office OVI/DUI News

The Fifth District Court of Appeals recently issued a decision that could be of use to OVI/DUI attorneys in Ohio.  In State v. Baker, 2018-Ohio-2285, the Court decided what constituted reasonable suspicion to required a motorist suspected of OVI to submit to field sobriety tests.  The Court noted that Baker was stopped for an equipment violation, and there was no indication of erratic driving.  Given the lack of erratic driving, the Court held that the strong odor of alcohol and bloodshot, glassy eyes were not enough to require Baker to submit to field sobriety tests.  A link to the decision can be found here.
