"Probably Impaired"

Ohio Disciplinary Counsel has filed a complaint alleging that an attorney had fled the scene after stopping for a police officer who had witnessed him making an illegal U-turn.

A high speed chase led to an accident that damaged but did not disable the attorney's car. 

The attorney was able to elude the officer. He allegedly then rented a car and took the damaged vehicle to a local body shop.

The police officer did get the license plate.

The attorney was convicted of a third degree felony of failing to comply with the officer and found not guilty of tampering with evidence.

He admitted that he had "been drinking" and was "probably impaired" in the presentence investigation.

The attorney is on an interim suspension for the conviction.
