How long ago was that? Much has happened in the past decade - although I wouldn't go so far as to say that all LEAs in Ohio handle OC properly, from personal experience, and from reports by others like BB62, MWSY, etc., it is rare to encounter anything like you mentioned.

That instance was probably 5 yrs ago or there abouts. The last on duty Ky Leo that was threatened with arrest for OC , while on duty in OH, that I'm aware of was last year..

Let me rephrase. They know , but don't care. OC is legal in Ohio but LE reaction to it keeps most gun owners from enduring the hassle of doing it.
i did for 2 years straight...never had any negative encounters. although I have chilled out lately for personal reasons
