Ohio State Highway Patrol says troopers stopped Altman just before 9 p.m. on Route 2 near East 55th Street in Cleveland.
The patrol said, “troopers initiated a traffic stop and during their interaction with the driver indicators of impairment were observed. The driver was subsequently placed under arrest for OVI and soon after offered a breath test which he refused.“
Troopers charged Altman with “committing a marked lanes violation and OVI.”
“Throughout the traffic stop, Altman was respectful and cooperative with troopers,” the patrol added.
