Wisconsin Officer Injured After Being Dragged by Teen Driver

September 25, 2012  | 

A Fitchburg, Wis., police officer was injured Monday morning when he was dragged 450 feet, or nearly one city block, by a teenage driver who pinned the officer's arm in his car window and sped off, police said.

The 16-year-old boy was arrested a short time later after a foot chase. He was tentatively charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety and resisting an officer and was taken to the Juvenile Reception Center, said Lt. Chad Brecklin.

Officer Jay Wilson was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released. Wilson, 54, is a 27-year veteran of the department, Brecklin said.

After reading the news report I think this little turd should be charged with attempted murder of a Police Officer, among many others. 16 years old and already he's looking for a slab at the MEs office and a hole in Potters field. Wonder where his breeders are? NEVER stick your arm inside a vehicle! Just tase the pos first, drag it out & hook it up. Blues, Please stay safe.

I wonder what this kids criminal history looks like so far, and he's only 16. I agree with the attempted murder charge instead of resisting arrest. Only 16, and he's already like this.

If your old enough to attempt to kill an Officer then your old enough to do a life sentence with the big boys.
