Love had trouble locating his wallet, but eventually found it by moving empty and nearly-empty beer cans in the vehicle, according to police. He then spent nearly a minute looking in his wallet for his driver’s license before realizing it was in a pocket.
Love refused to perform field sobriety tests without the presence of his attorney, but the officer charged him with operating a vehicle intoxicated based on his own observations as well was those of witnesses.
Love’s Commercial Driver’s License was seized and, in addition to the OVI charge, he was also cited for open container.
He was allowed to call his mother to pick him up after release on his own recognizance.
