Ohio State J.T. Barrett charged with DUI:  In late October, J.T. Barrett was charged with Ohio’s version of DWI called OWI.  Barrett was stopped by police when he attempted to avoid a roadblock that police had set up to catch Ohio State students returning to campus.  These roadblocks have very specific requirements in notice, signage and how they treat persons stopped by the roadblock.  The reason for this specificity is that roadblocks are not consistent with the 4th Amendment.

Ohio State J.T. Barrett charged with DUI:  Barrett picked a poor time to drink and drive as he is 20 years old and cannot legally drink in the United States.  The drinking age was manipulated by the Federal Government with legislation cutting off highway funding to states who did not adopt the 21 year drinking age.  Barrett apparently did not know that he could refuse to talk to the police by politely stating “I want a Lawyer.  If I am not under arrest, please let me know.”  Barrett also did not realize that he could legally refuse the preliminary breath test device given at roadside.  Barrett also failed to realize that he could decline to perform the roadside gymnastics that are designed to generate probable cause to arrest.

Top Rockingham County Reckless Driving Lawyer: Several years ago Scott Wilson, an American Actor in his 70s was stopped for a possible DUI.  The relevant Officers insisted that Wilson perform the field sobriety tests.  They did so even though the standardized field tests were originally vetted for persons no older than 60 years of age.  Some time thereafter the tests were claimed to be available to drivers as old as 65 even though no new validation studies were attempted.  Even though Wilson was too old for the tests to provide a valid correct arrest decision the officers used them to justify his DUI arrest.  This is one of the problems with the current use of the standardized field sobriety tests — the officers use them as impairment tests rather than as indicators of a blood alcohol level above or below the legal limit.  The investigators who developed the tests were very clear that roadside impairment tests could not be conducted at roadside.  Instead, they developed roadside tests that could project a probability of a blood alcohol content above or below the legal limit.  Officers need to understand a proper use of the roadside tests to make a correct arrest decision.

Top Rockingham County Reckless Driving Lawyer:  Wilson has played in many, many films including, In the Heat of the Night, In Cold Blood, The Great Gatsby, and Dead Man Walking to name a few.  In recent years Wilson is best known for his role in The Walking Dead as Hershel Greene.  Wilson’s character was killed in Season Four.
