SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Springfield police arrested the person they say dragged a police officer with a pickup truck before fleeing.

Police spokeswoman Lisa Cox says the officer suffered moderate injuries but was awake and talking as he was taken away from the scene Saturday night.

Investigators say the officer’s leg got caught in the wheel well of the truck in a parking lot at a Casey’s convenience store. The officer was dragged about 150 yards before the truck drove away.

The truck was found a few miles away and the driver was questioned. Further details were not immediately available.
