A Phoenix Police officer was injured Tuesday evening after he was dragged a short distance by a suspect's vehicle.
About 5 p.m., a motor officer conducted a traffic stop on eastbound I-10 on a black newer model SUV.
The suspect pulled over near 32nd Street, and when the officer approached, the driver put the SUV in drive and accelerated.
The officer's arm was caught in the vehicle and he was dragged a short distance before freeing himself.
The suspect fled the scene. He is described as a Hispanic male, 18 to 24 years of age.
The officer was taken to the hospital but is expected to be ok.
