Man charged with OVI was dancing in car

Police knocked on the window of the vehicle several times before the driver woke up and began moving as if he were dancing.

Unfortunately, the dance floor was closed. He said he drank one beer at 8 p.m. and another two hours later, although a stronger odor lingered. His field sobriety test did not go well, so he was arrested for OVI, and the breath test confirmed his condition, registering a .178, more than twice the legal limit of .08.

During inventory of the car, an Ohio driver’s license belonging to someone else was found. The driver said he found the license and did not know the owner. He was cited and released to a sober person.
