A deputy was hurt Tuesday when she was dragged 100 feet by a car that tried to flee during a traffic stop in Anaheim, officials said.
Orange County Sheriff’s deputies pulled the car over near Brookhurst Street and Cerritos Avenue about 5:45 p.m., said OC Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock.
As one deputy spoke to the driver of the car, a female deputy approached the passenger side of the car.
When she grabbed the passenger side door, the car sped away and yanked her along, Hallock said.
The other deputy chased the car as it drove and dragged his colleague about 100 feet, officials said.
The driver stopped the car as he was cut off by another deputy. He was taken into custody after a fight with the deputies, who struggled to restrain the man.
Video from the scene showed the man handcuffed on the ground, blood on his cheek. A group of deputies could be seen trying to gain control of the man.
The female deputy was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
