MASON, OH (FOX19) - The mother of Ryan Widmer was charged with an OVI in Mason Tuesday night.

Jill Widmer was pulled over at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night when police officers observed a flat tire at the corner of US 4 and Bethany Road. When police pulled her over, they observed behavior in Widmer that led the police to suspect that she had been drinking.

According to police reports, after administering several tests and determining she was unable to follow directions for the test, the officer arrested Widmer on the OVI charge. A bottle of vodka was found inside the vehicle when officers searched her car.

Jill Widmer's son Ryan is awaiting his third trial for killing his wife, Sarah.
