NOVI, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a suburban Detroit police officer has been treated and released after being dragged by a motorist following a traffic stop.

The city of Novi’s assistant police chief Erick Zinser tells The Detroit News that the officer pulled over a woman around 2 a.m. Monday for a minor traffic violation. Zinser says the officer determined that the woman had a suspended license and multiple warrants out for her arrest.

TV stations WDIV and WXYZ report the woman had two children with her and told the officer she needed to make arrangements for them.

Zinser says the woman then drove away and the officer, who tried to restrain her, was dragged about 60 feet. The woman was being sought.

Zinser says the officer had minor cuts and bruises.
