CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Blue Ash police officer arrested for drunk driving earlier this month appeared in court Wednesday.

Jason Lobenthal was pulled over August 7 after police say he was swerving. He refused a Breathalyzer test.

He is also charged with menacing for an incident with a woman earlier in the day.

He had another pretrial set for Sept. 10. His attorney, Mike Allen, says they plan to take the case to trial.

Lobenthal also asked for his driving privileges to be reinstated. That request was denied.
