A fleeing suspect is under arrest after authorities say he struck a police officer with his vehicle and then hid in the woods, sparking a manhunt that lasted several hours.

Adam Lynn, 33, of Colerain Township is held without bond at the Hamilton County jail. He is scheduled to face a judge Friday morning on several charges: felonious assault, abduction, tampering with evidence, obstructing official business and driving on a suspended license.

According to court records, Lynn was pulled over by Ross Township police in Butler County for investigation of a domestic violence incident. 

He sped off, hitting the officer and injuring his leg.

A woman inside Lynn's pickup truck tried to get out, but he grabbed her by her hair and yanked her back in. He took off  again with her inside, drove to his parents' home and hid the truck behind a barn on the property to prevent police from finding it.

He physically threatened the woman again before running off, records show. 

Police called him as he hid in a nearby wooded area and advised him he was wanted for felonious assault for striking the officer. They asked him several times to return to his parents' house and turn himself in. They also told him they had a police search dog scouring the area for him.

Lynn refused to surrender and lied several times about his location, according to police.

Authorities finally tracked him down more than three hours later in the 6300 block of Dunlap Road, which is near his Colerain Township residence. 

A K-9 found him in a shed and bit him after he would not walk out.

When the dog released its mouth, Lynn hit the animal twice in the face, so the dog bit him again.

Lynn kept resisting even as officers then tried to take him into custody. 

He was arrested at 4:42 a.m. and booked into the county jail by 8:30 a.m.
