MIAMI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Miami Township man has been charged with his 13th OVI and is now in the Clermont County Jail.

David Hodge, 52, was standing next to his car just after midnight on January 13th. Miami Township Police Sergeant John Swing saw Hodge and thought that the car might be broke down, so he stopped to assist the driver. Swing offered Hodge a ride to a nearby residence.

When Swing started to pat him down before allowing him to get into the patrol car, he saw Hodge reach into his pants pocket and grab the butt of a pistol. Swing quickly grabbed the gun and placed Hodge under arrest. There was a box of ammunition also in Hodge's pocket. Six rounds were missing, all of which were in the hand gun. According to police, two of those rounds had already been fired.

Swing noticed that Hodge was intoxicated and called for backup to assist with a field sobriety test. Hodge admitted that he had been drinking and had driven to the area on SR 126 near Miamiville. He was placed under arrest for OVI and Weapons under Disability.

Hodge had 12 prior lifetime OVI's, and six in the past 20 years. Hodge's drivers license was suspended and his last valid license was in 1987.
