CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati police were involved in a chase with a semi-truck Wednesday night through the Tri-State that went through all three states.

Officers pursued Henson into Kentucky where they say several Kentucky police units joined the chase.

Police say they deployed tire deflation devices on I-471 and I-275 when Henson continued on his path. The devices caused the front tires of the semi to deflate and fall off the rim of the vehicle.

Henson finally came to a stop and surrendered to police around 10:45 p.m. after crossing the Carroll Cropper Bridge entering Dearborn County, Indiana, police say.

Tony Henson, 45, was booked into the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center after leading police on a multi-state chase Wednesday night.
