  1. Out of all the arrest for OVI in pickaway county how many were actually guilty??? As a lot of ppl that they arrest are Not guilty of impaired driving meaning on drugs. They look at ppl an then if a person looks tired eyes bloodshot an any other facial abnormalities they arrest them. Causing that person to spend thousands of dollars for attorney jail tyme an stress for looking tired or just being sick. Then when urine comes bk showing they were Not impaired they have to dismiss case. Bt Not after its already caused terrible circumstances in that persons life !! So what’s right ? Or wrong?? I Dt believe any law enforcement officer should have that much power by their judgment if a person is impaired by drugs!! N then they r in competition to arrest as many ppl for the year to get an award ?? Really?? Isn’t that just their job ?? That they get a award for doing?? I think the governor of Ohio needs to do something abt the means officers have to arrest ppl just by looking at them ?? So how many were actually prosecuted for those charges?
