ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A 36-year-old Texas man has been arrested in connection with dragging a Roswell officer during a traffic stop.

Roswell police said Brian Rudloff, of Odessa, Texas, was arrested in Texas following a multistate search.

According to authorities, Rudloff dragged the officer after he refused to get out of his car for a field sobriety late Monday. Police say the officer was dragged about 30 feet before Rudloff sped away.

Two Roswell patrol cars responding to the scene later crashed.

Authorities say Rudloff’s vehicle was found at a local hotel, and he was later arrested in Odessa.

Police say no officers suffered severe injuries.

It was not known if Rudloff had an attorney.
