ELYRIA, Ohio — An Elyria man facing his 11th OVI charge told police officers “you got me” when he was pulled over earlier this month.

Anthony W. Card is charged with faulty muffler, driving in marked lanes, driving under suspension, OVI—refusal, OVI and criminal damaging, court records state.

Card was pulled over by Elyria police on June 6 just before midnight. A police report states that officers drove up behind Card’s car and noticed his muffler was making excessive noise and he was weaving all over the street.

During the traffic stop, police asked Card to take a sobriety test that involved walking, turning and standing on one leg. Police said that when Card tried to walk a straight line, he stumbled over his feet. When asked to count out loud to nine and take the same amount of steps, he stopped at 11.

Eventually, Card told police he was done and was refusing to take any more tests. He then reached out to shake the hand of one of the officers and said, “You got me,” according to the police report.

He was arrested and taken to the Lorain County Jail. Card’s case has been bound over to the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas.
