Officer Dragged On Brownsville Road
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A police officer was apparently dragged by a car in a Pittsburgh neighborhood.
Two state probation officers tried to serve warrant on a man who stopped in the 400-block of Brownsville Road.
When officers approached the driver’s side of the suspect’s vehicle, there was a confrontation. One of them tried to use a taser.
When that happened, witnesses say the man drove away with the officer’s arm still in the car, dragging him a few feet and hitting several parked vehicles. That’s when the officer’s partner fired four or five shots.
Witnesses say a woman was also in the car.
Once the officer got his arm out of the car, the suspect drove off and led police on a chase down to Merit Avenue in Brentwood where he was arrested.
He is now in the Allegheny County Jail.
The suspect’s name has not been released.
