I'd say he will win based on 1st amendment and win big.
Yeaaaah. That’s what we call long settled case law. Every cop knows that if someone gives you the finger you follow them until you have PC for a stop and then write them for whatever that may be. County sticker missing, no front plate, window tint, etc. The finger is to be completely ignored.
But in all seriousness the Ohio disorderly conduct statue STILL has an increased penalty for an offense in the presence of a law enforcement officer. I can’t think of any realistic scenarios where that could ever apply in a constitutionally sound manner.
Never ask if you can carry at a non-posted place, but always ask why you cannot at one that is!
Just because they offer call ahead seating doesn't mean you call ahead for carry permission.
