According to the bar association complaint, Blauvelt was caught twice in a state of undress in public in 2018.
On Oct. 25, 2018, a state trooper received a call that a motorist on Interstate 75 was masturbating while driving, according to the complaint.
“The trooper initiated a traffic stop and found Blauvelt in a state of nudity with pants covering his lap. After engaging with Blauvelt, the trooper believed he was intoxicated,” according to the report.
Blauvelt was charged with OVI in Franklin Municipal Court. He pleaded guilty to an amended charge of reckless operation and was given a fine and a suspended jail term and told to attend a driving intervention program.

In Lebanon Municipal Court for the same incident, Blauvelt pleaded guilty to public indecency and he was given a fine, a suspended sentence and placed on probation.
On March 20, 2018, a Hamilton officer stopped Blauvelt for a headlight violation on Main Street. He received a traffic citation, and although he was not charged, the officer wrote in the statement of facts that “(defendant) was not wearing pants.”
The bar association complaint states, “public nudity is a chronic problem for Blauvelt.”
“Blauvelt’s conduct adversely reflects his fitness to practice law. He engaged in a pattern of conduct that indicates an indifference to his legal obligation,” wrote attorney Chris Pagan, counsel for the bar association.
The bar association alleges Blauvelt could be charged with misconduct. Blauvelt could not be reached for comment, and his attorney, Daniell Hurr, declined comment.
Pagan and Herr submitted an agreement for discipline to the Ohio Supreme Court Board of Professional Conduct that noted a medical report from Blauvelt’s psychiatrist says he is treated with medicine and psychotherapy for bipolar disorder. The doctor says that Blauvelt is fit for practice with treatment.
Pagan noted the offenses in this case are misdemeanors.
But the agreement for discipline was rejected by the board of professional conduct, and a hearing before a three-member panel has been scheduled for Nov. 25 in Columbus, according to Richard Dove, director of the board.
The recommendation of the panel will then go before the full board for consideration.
