Truck Driver Leads Police On Multi-State Chase
Dearborn County, Indiana – A truck driver resisted a traffic stop and led police on a more than 30-mile, multi-state chase on Wednesday.
According to the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Office, Tony Henson, 45, of Cynthiana, Kentucky, fled after a Cincinnati Police officer attempted to stop his bobtail semi on Wednesday. In a release, officials said Henson failed to yield to the officer’s signal to stop and “attempted to ram the Cincinnati officer multiple times before fleeing southbound on I-471.”
The pursuit then began and continued along I-471 into Kentucky. Police in Kentucky then joined the chase as it continued onto I-275.
Police say stop sticks were deployed numerous times along I-471 and I-275 causing the front two truck tires to blow and eventually fall off. After crossing the Carrol Cooper Bridge and entering into Dearborn County, officials said Henson surrendered to law enforcement at approximately 10:45 p.m.
Henson was then transported to the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center and subsequently charged with Resisting Law Enforcement and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Police said they found a digital scale, metal bottle caps containing white residue, a baggie containing an unidentified white powder, seven hypodermic needles, and two glass pipes in the cab of the truck.
Investigators said the pipes are typically used to smoke methamphetamine.
Henson could also face additional charges in Ohio and Kentucky.
