N. Indiana officer hurt when dragged by car

PIERCETON, Ind. (AP) - Authorities in northern Indiana say a man suspected of drunken driving fled a traffic stop and dragged a police officer about 10 feet on pavement.
The Kosciusko County sheriff's department said Pierceton Deputy Marshal Jim Bumbaugh suffered cuts and road-rash abrasions to his hands, arms and knees. He was treated at a hospital and released.
Sheriff's Sgt. Chad Hill said during the stop Tuesday evening the man jumped back into a car and started it. Hill said Bumbaugh grabbed the man and tried to pull him out, but the man raced away.
Police later arrested a 50-year-old Warsaw man on preliminary charges including felony criminal recklessness and battery on a police officer.
