LEBANON, Ohio - A Warren County man learned his lesson the hard way - don't be drunk when you go to court.
Mark Dowers, 43, appeared in Warren County Domestic Relations court Tuesday to answer contempt charges for allegedly not paying child support.
A court employee smelled alcohol on Dowers and Magistrate Yvonne Iversen sent him to Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Peeler.
Dowers blew a .192 - more than double the legal limit of .08.
Peeler sent him to jail for three days for contempt of court.
