CINCINNATI – An Ohio officer is facing charges after being stopped and charged with drunken driving.
Body camera video obtained by WCPO from the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows a state trooper pulling over Justin Shields.
In the video, the trooper gives Shields a field sobriety test.
“I had you speeding,” the trooper said as he walked over to Shields’ car.
“My bad, bro,” Shields said, displaying his Cincinnati police badge and driver’s license.
The trooper asked Shields if he had been drinking, to which Shields replied “No.”
The trooper then had Shields follow a light with his eyes and again asked, “How much have you had to drink?”
“Literally nothing,” Shields said.
The video shows Shields initially refusing any OVI tests, but later agreeing to a field test.
During the field test, the trooper made Shields walk heel to toe for several steps. The video shows Shields having to put one foot out of line to control his balance.
When the trooper made Shields stand on one foot for 30 seconds, Shields can be seen reaching 26 seconds before putting another foot on the ground for balance.
That’s when the trooper tells Shields to put his hands behind his back and informs Shields that he is being arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired.
WCPO reports that Shields has been placed on administrative duty while the case is pending.
Shields pleaded not guilty to an OVI charge.
