ovi, omvi, dui, dwi, drunk drivingSpoiler Alert: They all mean the same thing: operating a vehicle under the influence of drug, alcohol or a combination of drugs and alcohol, in violation of Ohio Revised Code 4511.19.

Colloquially, the most common way to describe drunk driving is by referring to it as a DUI. The term DUI is universally understood and used by most national news organizations. DWI (driving while impaired) is also a ubiquitous term used to describe drunk driving. More info

Ever Had A “Natty?” Yes, You’ve Had A Natty!

natural lightI recently came across this article, Strange Brews: Natty Light on the Modern Drunkard Magazine site.  Growing up in Ohio, drinking an Anheuser-Busch Natural Light was a rite of passage. How many of us, in college, sought to buy a 30 pack of beer for about 50 cents a beer?  According to the site:

Cheap beer is not a fresh idea, but for Natty it wasn’t supposed to be this way. Concocted by Anheuser-Busch in the 1970s, Natty was envisioned as the brewery’s elegant answer to the Miller Lite juggernaut. It wasn’t. Today it’s a punch line even to the people who buy it. And yet, according to Beverage Industry, Natural Light is currently the 5th best-selling beer in the U.S. Natty, it seems, is the beer that America both laughs at and loves. It’s been a strange journey.

In addition to telling the not-so-successful story of the launch and early advertisements for Natty Light, the article also talks about the process of making and marketing the first light beers.  Taking us full circle through the less than stellar performance of the brand, the article ends with a justification for America’s second look at this (great?) Ohio beer.

In 2009 came the Great Recession. Beer drinkers began trading down to “sub-premium” brands, and A-B courted them with its first television advertising campaign for Natty since the early years of its launch. There were no celebrities this time around. The crude ads touted “nattyisms”—dull-witted jargon targeting young drinkers and couch-potatoes—but they were good enough to launch Natty into the top five in U.S. beer sales.

If you get a chance check this article out, if you need to speak to an attorney because you have been accused of having too many Natty Lights, give DaytonDUI a call at (937) 318-1384.
