A Summit County man is facing a slew of charges after leading authorities on a chase through several cities that only ended after police used pepper spray, a Taser and a K9 on the man.

According to Solon police, 46-year-old Harry Klun, of Reminderville, was charged with fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest and speeding.

The chase started just before 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 16 when the Twinsburg Police Department notified Solon officers they were chasing a car northbound on Liberty Road into their city.

A Solon officer located Klun's car and joined the chase, but Klun refused to stop. The officer pursued the man to the area of State Route 91 and Cannon Road near United Methodist Church, 5540 Som Center Road, before authorities called off the chase.

A short time later Klun was spotted by other officers at a nearby gas station pumping gas. Klun jumped into his vehicle, rammed his car into a police cruiser and sped off. Woodmere and Orange Village police chased the man a short distance before they also stopped their pursuit.

Klun was seen again by Solon police and they gave chase, eventually using stop sticks on his car. He eventually stopped in the parking lot of United Methodist Church, where the chase had been called off earlier.

Authorities said Klun was uncooperative with officers, and they had to use pepper spray, a Taser and a K9 unit on the man to subdue him.

He was taken into custody and is currently being held on a $10,000 bond. Klun is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 27.
