OVI/DUI Tipsters

We are encouraged to contact the authorities anytime we witness questionable driving that could be the result of someone's intoxication.  The State of Ohio has spent considerable money in an attempt to dissuade citizens from drinking and driving.  Call centers are available 24/7 to answer calls from concerned citizens who picked up the phone and dialed their police agency or 1-800-GRAB-DUI.   The question becomes, how much can a police officer rely on the tipster in order to make a lawful stop?

The answer is based on how reliable the source.  Someone reporting a suspected OVI/DUI is either anonymous or identified.   Someone who refuses to give their name or forgets is deemed less reliable than someone who gives authorities their name and willingness to testify in court. In fact, police relying on an anonymous informant must also witness the questionable driving.  If the officer does not witness bad driving then he/she may not stop the suspected driver.
