WCPO-TV, the ABC affiliate in CINCINNATI, is reporting that MERLIN MEDIA CEO RANDY MICHAELS has been arrested for OVI (Operating A Vehicle Impaired) in MIDDLETOWN, OH early this morning. MICHAELS was arrested at the intersection of State Route 122 and I-75 at 2:05a.
WCPO reports, "MICHAELS bonded out of jail in his own name at 5:20a FRIDAY after he paid $615, according to MIDDLETOWN police."
CINCINNATI.COM reports, "according to a MIDDLETOWN police report, an officer on patrol came upon MICHAELS in his stuck car at Interstate 75 and OHIO 122 under an overpass. 'Due to the location of the vehicle and the mud and water that the vehicle was sitting in up to the frame, I felt it was safer for the driver to stay in the vehicle until the wrecker/driver was able to get the vehicle unstuck and out of harm's way,' the officer wrote on his report. After smelling alcohol on MICHAEL's breath and observing that MICHAELS was swaying and unsteady on his feet, the officer put MICHAELS through three field sobriety tests, which he failed. The officer placed MICHAELS under arrest. MICHAELS refused an alcohol breath test."
