OVI Reduced to Minor Misdemeanor Reckless Operation During Suppression Hearing

During the course of a hearing on a motion to suppress filed by Chase Mallory, our client had his OVI reduced to a reckless operation with a $75 fine.

Our client was traveling home after a work function where he had been consuming alcohol.  He had the misfortune of passing Columbus police officers in a no-passing zone. He was promptly pulled over. When the officers smelled the odor of alcohol and noticed he had an open container of Hennessy, he was asked to step out of the car to perform standardized field sobriety tests and was subsequently arrested for OVI.

We filed a motion to suppress the evidence as the prosecution was demanding a plea to the OVI. Our client could not afford an OVI conviction. During the scope of the hearing, the prosecutor acknowledged a lack of competent testimony and agreed to amend the OVI to a minor misdemeanor traffic violation. He received a $75 fine for his sentence.
