DEERFIELD TWP., Ohio -- A drug suspect who got away from police after a high-speed chase and crash Friday was arrested Monday.
Christopher Manley, 39, was caught hiding behind a dumpster at Bruegger's Bagels, 8220 Arbor Square Drive, according to police.
Lt. John Faine of the Warren County Sheriff's Office said he saw a man matching Manley's description as he was driving nearby about 9:30 a.m.
"I saw him crossing Mason-Montgomery Road. It was just a quick glance, but I thought it could be him because I had been out there Friday looking for him," Faine said.
Manley surrendered without incident.
Manley was wanted in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, and deputies tried to stop him on northbound I-71 in Warren County just after 7 p.m. Friday.
Manley got off the interstate onto Mason-Montgomery Road, then crashed over the center median and drove into a Walgreens parking lot.
Manley then drove into a cornfield, stopped about 150 feet deep, and ran off.
Manley was booked into the Warren County jail Monday on charges of failure to comply and obstructing official business, as well as drug trafficking in Kentucky.
Bond was set at $125,000.
He will be arraigned in Warren County Court on Tuesday.
