MONROE, OH (FOX19) - A Mason man was arrested in Monroe early Wednesday morning after traveling several miles the wrong way on State Route 63 in Monroe.

Eric Hendley, 21, was seen by police at around 3:40 a.m. driving east in the westbound lane on State Route 63. When police tried to stop Henley, he proceeded to speed up on the highway to try to avoid police, running several red lights.

Hendley later turned into American Way and fled the vehicle. Police found him in a wooded area hiding under a trailer.

Once police had Hendley in custody, police charged him with avoiding police, operating a vehicle while intoxicated, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
