DUI Suspect Drags Kentucky Officer

February 07, 2011  | 

A DUI suspect attempting to evade arrest dragged and injured the officer who stopped him, before he crashed into another parked car, and fled the scene, reports WKYT.

Frankfort (Ky.) Police Officer Byron Redmon pulled over a truck driven by Russell Wheat, who put the truck in reverse while talking with Officer Redmon. The officer kept up with the truck, before being dragged when Wheat pulled the truck forward.

Wheat was arrested later in a wooded area, after ditching the truck.
