LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. — Authorities arrested a driver in a semi Wednesday night who led police on an chase from Cincinnati to Dearborn County, Indiana.

A Cincinnati police officer attempted to stop 45-year-old Tony Henson, of Cynthiana, Kentucky, but Henson wouldn't stop and attempted to ram the officer's car multiple times before fleeing southbound on Interstate 471, according to a news release from the Dearborn County Sheriff's Office.

Cincinnati police pursued Henson into Kentucky, where several local police units joined them as Henson continued onto Interstate 275, deputies said.

Authorities used tire deflation devices in multiple locations, causing the semi's two front tires to fall off the rim. Henson stopped and surrendered after crossing the Carroll Cropper Bridge into Indiana, deputies said.

Dearborn County authorities have charged Henson with resisting law enforcement. Henson has also been charged in Ohio with felonious assault and failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer, according to Hamilton County court records. Dearborn County deputies said he may face more charges in Kentucky as well.

Henson is being held in the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center.
