Topeka man charged with using car to drag officer

Associated Press - April 23, 2016 2:16 pm

A 24-year-old Topeka man faces charges accusing him of dragging a police officer during a traffic stop.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://j.mp/1SkbUB0) that Dyllon Alan Tucker is charged with aggravated kidnapping and other charges stemming from the incident April 14.

Authorities said the officer stopped an SUV driven by Tucker, who then assaulted the officer and drove away, dragging the officer who had her arm in the car. As she was pulled down the street, the officer opened fire and wounded Tucker.

The officer was treated at a hospital and released.

The charges against Tucker were filed late Tuesday and became public Friday.

It’s unclear if Tucker has a lawyer. He’s being held in the Shawnee County Jail on a $500,000 surety bond.
