MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man is accused of dragging a police sergeant with his car during a motor vehicle stop.

Manchester police say the sergeant stopped a vehicle being driven by Peter Hills around 5:30 a.m. Friday.

Police say Hills pulled into a residential driveway, but put the vehicle back into drive while the sergeant was speaking with him. They say Hills dragged the sergeant a short distance before he fell to the ground. Hills then fled the area.

Police say the vehicle the 32-year-old Hills was driving had been reported stolen.

The sergeant suffered minor injuries.

Police arrested Hills on Friday after he was spotted in Vernon.

He’s being held on a $175,000 bond and is due in court July 5.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.
