LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Lawrence police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who allegedly injured an officer by dragging him with his vehicle as he fled a traffic stop.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Amy Rhoads says 36-year-old Aramis N. Hernandez is wanted for aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.

A police officer stopped a white Ford Fusion with a Missouri license plate around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday. Authorities say Hernandez fled the area, dragging the officer on the street with his vehicle.

Rhoads says the officer was treated in a local hospital for injuries that weren’t life-threatening. He has been released.

Police said Wednesday that the vehicle has been found, but that Hernandez is still at large. Hernandez was wearing a blue suit, white shirt, red tie and aviator-style sunglasses.
