Po­lice search for driver who dragged of­fi­cer down road in es­cape

Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE/ATLANTIC -

PICTOU, N.S. - Po­lice in Nova Sco­tia are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help to find a young driver they say dragged an of­fi­cer for about 15 me­tres down a high­way while try­ing to speed away from au­thor­i­ties.

Pictou County Dis­trict RCMP say an of­fi­cer stopped the driver for a brief con­ver­sa­tion at a high­way check­point in Alma early Sat­ur­day morn­ing.

Po­lice say the driver abruptly ac­cel­er­ated the car, catching the of­fi­cer’s shoul­der and drag­ging him down the road un­til he man­aged to free him­self.

They say the car fled east­bound on High­way 4 in what is de­scribed as an old, blue two-door Chevro­let or Pon­tiac.
