The laws of the state of Ohio treat out-of-state residents equally harshly when they have been arrested in Dayton. If this is your situation, you will be required to address the charge even though you may live far away or across the country.
Court appearances are difficult and you may wonder how to proceed and address the situation. Most states belong to the "Driver License Compact" which is an interstate compact that allows states to exchange information concerning license suspension and traffic violations of non-residents with the state where they are licensed.
