A man is behind bars after a chase Monday night that shut down Interstate 71.

It all began in Symmes Township when a Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy attempted to stop a white Chevrolet at the intersection of Fields Ertel Road and Mason Road.

The driver then took off and entered southbound I-71, ignoring the deputy's lights and sirens. While trying to elude police, the driver sustained a flat tire and eventually stopped at the 15.3 milemarker before taking off on foot.

The deputy and a Blue Ash officer took the driver into custody.

The driver, identified as Elias Heard, 20, was taken to Bethesda North Hospital for a foot injury. He was treated and released to the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Heard is charged with failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

SB I-71 was shut down for a short time during the incident.
