When Ohio residents get pulled over for drunk driving, law enforcement officials may ask drivers to take field sobriety tests. Some drivers may not want to perform these tests. However, it is important to understand that some of the tests may not be optional.
If you drink and drive, the chances of getting caught are pretty good. If you get caught in Ohio, you will probably go immediately to jail. This initial arrest takes you off the road and allows the court to set a date for your trial. Usually, you will spend only a night or two in jail. According to the Ohio Revised Code, the final ruling in your case may very well involve more jail time. This time, you probably will spend more than a night behind bars.
