COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP, HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) – -

A man stopped for a traffic violation on Ridge Avenue at Route 562 late Thursday night didn't stick around to get his ticket.

Instead he jumped into the channel of the Duck Creek in Columbia Township, escaping Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies. 

Deputies have issued a warrant for the arrest of Demeico Hester.

Officers said they thought Hester might have injured himself jumping down the steep embankment to the channelized creek, but he didn't stop. 

Hester's wanted for resisting arrest, domestic violence and obstruction of justice.

Deputies say Hester is on parole and was just released from prison on at the end of March after serving almost nine years for Aggravated Robbery.
