What are the Ohio state laws for driving underage intoxicated people?
I am 19 and so are my 3 friends. If I stay sober all night but my 3 friends get drunk and I drive them home, am I doing something illegal? Someone told me it was illegal to drive around intoxicated minors, even if I'm sober and there's no open containers in my vehicle.

DUI on a four Wheeler
My buddy wrecked his four wheeler into a mailbox and flipped it into someones property. They were taken by squad to the emergency room and taken care of. The officer asked him questions while he was face down in the dirt on the scene of the accident and didn't administer any sobriety test. He came back two days later to ask him questions about the accident and to see if he could have his medical records from the hospital. He told them he needed to talk to his lawyer and the officer left. Can the officer get the records from the hospital and charge him with a dui ?
Yes. The OVI statute includes both public and private property and a "vehicle" is anything with wheels or runners. (...
