Hit-and-Run Suspect Cleared After Arrest
AKRON– Police said a so-called ‘apologetic’ hit-and-run driver that they arrested has been cleared.
Officers from the Akron Police Department Traffic Bureau arrested Shaune P. Chesney, 48, of Akron, for a hit-and-run.
Originally, police had said he was wanted for an incident on March 15 where someone struck a five-year-old boy with a car, while the child was crossing Goodhue Ave.
That driver stopped; asked the child if he was alright; then took off.
The child was transported to Akron Children’s Hospital and treated for a broken leg.
The initial investigation led officers to Chesney.
