Ohio has different types of DUI offenses.  Most folks are familiar with operating a vehicle under the influence attorney or OVI.  OVIs consist of two potential separate charges: (1) the OVI charge, which alleges that the person operated a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or a combination of them; and (2) the BAC charge, which usually alleges that the person operated a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or more, which is determined by a breath sample, or an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine, as well as levels of various drugs.  Some folks may also have heard of OVI’s close relative: physical control of a vehicle while under the influence, which occurs when one is in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with possession of the keys, and the person is under the influence or drugs, alcohol or a combination of them, or has a BAC.  A less known type of DUI in Ohio is operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC), which makes it illegal for persons under 21 years of age to drive a vehicle with a concentration of .02 percent, but less than .08 percent by weight of alcohol by whole blood or breath, or with an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine.
