MONROE, OH (FOX19) - Monroe Police say an exotic dancer ran over a client in Monroe, then dragged him for a few miles under her car before he later died.

The incident started early Saturday morning when a call was placed from the 300 block of Timrick Place requesting a private show from Naughty Bodies in Batavia.

The dancer, Kristina Hensley, 35, of Higginsport, arrived at the residence and police say "something" happened to make her want to get away quickly. The client, identified as Jae Cho, 31, ran after her.

Hensley pulled into the Shell gas station in the 1200 block of Hamilton Lebanon Road just before 5 a.m., where she learned that Cho was under her 2000 Ford Explorer and had been dragged the entire distance, which is about two miles.

"I was getting ready for my morning rush hour and it was quiet, nothing was happening and she comes running in screaming hysterical and says, 'You need to call 911. It was an accident. He jumped in front of me,'" said Barb Hoffman, who works at the Shell station.

Investigators say Cho was alive when emergency crews were called, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Monroe Police Sgt. Tim Cobaugh says there are many questions that need answered in their investigation.

"We do have a reconstruction team that is going to reconstruct the crash from the point of impact to the final point of rest and that will be done soon," Sgt. Cobaugh said.

As of right now, Hensley is only being charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Additional charges are possible. She is being held in the Butler County Jail on a $50,000 bond. She has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Tuesday.
