As a licensed driver on an Ohio road, you have given implied consent to provide a sample of your breath if you are stopped by the police and the officer has probable cause to believe that you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you get pulled over and arrested for an Ohio OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence) or Ohio DUI, the law requires that you take a blood, breath, or urine test. Columbus, Ohio OVI attorney Peter J. Binning will help defend you against your Ohio DUI charge in the event that you were either in physical control of a vehicle while under the influence or even simply in the driver’s seat with the keys, regardless of whether they are in the ignition.
