Man Charged With Dragging Georgia Cop With His Car

A man suspected of dragging a Savannah, Georgia, police officer in his car turned himself in Thursday morning.

A Georgia man surrendered to cops on Thursday after he was apparently caught on video dragging an police officer with his car.

Brandon Christopher Adams of Savannah, Georgia, was charged with charged with aggravated assault and felony obstruction of a police officer after he dragged a cop with his car and almost ran him over last weekend in an incident recorded by the cop's body camera, police said.

Adams, 23, turned himself in Thursday and was arrested without incident, police said.

The police video, which has gotten wide circulation on YouTube, appears to show Adams refusing orders from the cop, who was answering a shoplifting call, and then speeding away with the cop's arm pinned between the seat and the seat belt Saturday.

The officer was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
