ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Orlando police say an officer is recovering from injuries to his arms and legs after being dragged by a car during a traffic stop.
Authorities tell the Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1LuCrp1 ) that the traffic stop Thursday turned into a drug investigation with several officers attempting to get the driver out of the car.
Police say the driver sped away, dragging one officer about a block before he fell. The car then crashed into a house.
According to police, 18-year-old Richard Andrew Rohas Campbell and a passenger fled on foot but were found nearby.
Campbell faces 14 charges, including aggravated assault, attempted homicide on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer and leaving the scene of crash. Orange County jail records on Sunday did not show whether he had an attorney.
