SANDUSKY COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - 19 Action News has obtained video of a December traffic stop by the Ohio Highway Patrol including a trucker driving drunk down the Ohio Turnpike in Sandusky County.

We also found that dozens of commercial drivers are busted for drunk driving in Ohio every year.
 
In this case, troopers say Adam Wrobel drove drunk with a blood alcohol level of .24.  That's six times the legal limit for commercial drivers. Records show Wrobel did not fight the charges. His sentence included ten days in jail, fines, a suspended license and more.

Patrol video shows Wrobel weaving and then failing sobriety tests.
 
The patrol tells us 33 commercial drivers were busted for drunk driving in 2013, 30 in 2014. A handful of others also were busted for reckless operation.
