Two Moberly Police Officers sustained minor injuries after being dragged by a suspect’s vehicle as he attempted to flee from a traffic stop at 221 South Morley late Saturday night.
According to the department, police stopped the 46 year old white male and asked him to step out of the car. The man refused and when the officers attempted to remove him, the suspect put the vehicle in reverse backing into the patrol vehicle, dragging the officers approximately 10 feet.
They were able to get away from the car when he began to drive forward.
A short pursuit was initiated, but was terminated after the man drove in an increasingly reckless manner.
The case has been referred to the prosecutor. The name of the suspect has not been released
