Anne Arundel County Police have arrested a 28-year-old man from Baltimore, who is accused of dragging an officer with his vehicle before trying to run over another officer in Glen Burnie.
On May 10, 2021 at approximately 11:45 a.m., officers were conducting a check on an occupied black BMW at the Exxon located at 8001 Crain Highway at which time they observed marijuana in plain view. Two black duffle bags were also observed in plain view in the passenger compartment. When officers asked the driver to exit the vehicle, he refused their commands.
The driver placed the vehicle into drive and started to accelerate towards one of the officers. Another officer reached inside the vehicle and attempted to grab the suspect at which time the driver grabbed the officer’s arm, dragging him along with the vehicle.
