DENVER (AP) - A Denver police officer hit and dragged by a car during a student protest is back at work nearly two years later.

Officer John Adsit returned to office duty on Wednesday. He was hospitalized for more than two months, has had more than a dozen surgeries and still has limited movement in his left arm because of nerve damage.

Adsit and three other bicycle officers were hit in December 2014. They were monitoring a protest of hundreds of students over the decision not to indict a police officer in the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

The driver suffered a seizure and was sentenced to six years of probation for vehicular assault and not disclosing his history of seizures when getting a driver’s license.
