The police chief of Shawnee Hills was arrested Tuesday night after being pulled over on suspicion of drunken driving, reports say.
But the lawyer for Chief Russell Baron says it’s unclear why Baron was charged with OVI since his blood-alcohol level tested at 0.04, below the legal limit of 0.08, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Baron, 34, of Delaware, Ohio, was pulled over at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday by a Delaware County Sheriff’s deputy.
Baron agreed to a breathalyzer test and cooperated with the deputy, his lawyer, Will Nesbitt, tells 10tv.com. He admitted he had consumed one beer.
The deputy issued a summons for Baron to appear in court but Baron was not booked into jail.
Nesbitt tells the Dispatch that Baron will plead not guilty when he appears in court on Monday.
