We are all used to seeing videos of OVI arrests on television. Bob Huggins, Paavo Jarvi, and other luminaries’ arrest video have regularly appeared on television and www.youtube.com following the arrest.
Well, pursuant to a recent decision from the 12th District Court of Appeals, in Clermont, Warren and Butler Counties (the area covered by the 12th District Court of Appeals) OVI arrest videos are not considered public records. If the agencies choose not to hand them out, they won’t be disclosed until after the case is resolved.
