CINCINNATI - The State of Ohio is now going on the record defending the breath test machine it has purchased for police agencies across the state to fight drunk driving.
Thursday night on 9 News at 6 p.m., anchor Lance Barry asks the state if they are concerned about the accuracy of the machine. Those results are now being questioned more in courts across the country, including in Ohio.
We also talk to West Chester-based OVI defense attorney Jeff Meadows, a critic of both the machine and the state. Meadows is claiming a cover-up of information being redacted from the tests.
"For what purpose, I will let everyone draw their own conclusion. But personally I can only come up with one conclusion as to why that information is being redacted on every single case," said Meadows.
"We are 100 percent sure this is a reliable instrument.," said Mary Martin, program administrator the Ohio's Department of Health Drug and Alcohol Program.
Don't miss the investigation you'll see only on 9 News at 6 p.m. and Lance even tests out the embattled Intoxilyzer 8000 for himself.
