AKRON -- Officers from the Akron Police Department Traffic Bureau arrested Shaune P. Chesney, 48, of Akron, for hit skip and driving under a suspended license.

Around 2:50 p.m. March 15, Chesney struck a five-year-old boy while the child was crossing Goodhue Avenue.

Chesney stopped momentarily, asked the boy if he was alright, and then fled the scene.

The five-year-old was transported to Akron Children's Hospital by family where he was treated for a broken leg.

The investigation led officers to Shaune Chesney and he was stopped on West Market and Pershing Avenue Thursday afternoon.

He was taken into custody and booked into the Summit County Jail. Chesney was arraigned Friday in Akron Municipal Court.
