CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Blue Ash man appeared in court Thursday morning accused of operating a vehicle under the influence and leaving his car parked on train tracks.

A Hamilton County judge set a $21,000 bond for Rodney Marshall, 34, on Thursday. Marshall was arrested in St. Bernard on Wednesday after police said he left the vehicle on Vine Street and forced the railroad company to halt train traffic.

Authorities said Marshall refused to move his car or answer any questions from police.

He was charged with OVI-alcohol or drug abuse, refusal of a chemical test and driving under OVI suspension. According to court documents, Marshall has six prior OVI convictions.

In addition, he was recently sentenced to three years for a previous OVI charge.

The case will go to a grand jury on Mar. 28 in Hamilton County.
