AKRON, Ohio — A Rover's Morning Glory radio personality has been charged with OVI after a crash in Akron.

Jeffrey Hadzinsky, otherwise known as Nadz, was driving east on East Waterloo Road in the right lane approaching George Washington Boulevard.

A gold Ford Ranger and Black Ram 1500 Classic Quad Cab were in the left lane on East Waterloo Road stopped at the red light for George Washington Boulevard.

According to police, Hadzinsky veered into the left lane, striking the mirror of the Ford Ranger then crashing into the back of the Ram, demolishing it.

Police said Hadzinsky attempted to flee the scene in his severely damaged vehicle, but was only able to make it several hundreds yards, where he abandoned it and ran into a nearby GetGo gas station restroom.

Citizens told officers Hadzinsky's location, where he was taken into custody.

Police said they immediately suspected he was under the influence of drugs based on his speech and behavior.

Hadzinsky was transported to the hospital and refused to submit to a chemical test, police said.

He has been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving under suspension and stopping after accident on public roads or highways.

This is his second OVI in the last two months, according to court records.

Hadzinsky's biography on the Rover's Morning Glory website describes him as: "'Recovering' pill-popper riddled with 'anxiety' and a long rap sheet."
