Man Jailed After Showing Up Drunk to His OVI Court Appearance



A Perrysville man was put behind bars last week bars after showing up intoxicated to his hearing for drunken driving.

Upon observing Jason Blythe, 33, drunkenly bumble into a Norwalk Municipal Court courtroom on Oct. 1, Judge Eric R. Weisenburger immediately ordered Blythe to submit to a breathalyzer test.

Blythe blew a hearty 0.154 percent- you'll recall that the legal limit for driving in Ohio is .08.

Blythe was found to be in contempt of court and Weisenburger sentenced him to five days in jail, effectively immediately, the Sandusky Register reports.

He then appeared in court Tuesday on the original case, pleading guilty to a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence, according to court records.

Showing little sympathy for the dense drunkard, Weisenburger sentenced him to 20 days in jail, fined him $1,000, ordered him to undergo six months of alcohol rehabilitation, and placed him on a two-year probation.
