Police arrested a Solon man after he allegedly tried to avoid being arrested for OWI on Nov. 13.

Cameron Boyce, 23, was charged with eluding, an aggravated misdemeanor.

According to police reports, Boyce was stopped by a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy for allegedly drag racing, but he instead started driving in the opposite direction.

Police said Boyce refused to stop after the officer had turned on the lights and sirens. Boyce’s vehicle reached 100 mph in a 35-mph zone along Riverside Drive, according to police.

Boyce told officers under Miranda that he drove away because he was afraid of being charged with OWI, police said. According to reports, Boyce had a blood-alcohol content of 0.07. The state’s legal driving limit is 0.08.

An aggravated misdemeanor is generally punishable by up to two years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine.
