A Massachusetts State Trooper was dragged down a busy road after pulling over a Mercedes driver for a traffic violation, shocking video shows.
The unidentified officer, who was left injured in the incident, had pulled over 31-year-old Derek Lobo at around 6 p.m. on Wednesday for “motor vehicle violations,” according to the state police’s Facebook post.
Dashcam footage shows the cop and his partner leaning into Lobo’s Mercedes with the driver’s door open. Seconds later, the unidentified officers lean further into the car, appearing to struggle with Lobo as his partner, Corey Douglas, reaches to grab his colleague to pull him out.
Douglas’ attempt was futile as Lobo took off down the road, taking the officer with him as Douglas ran back toward the cruiser.
Lobo drives wildly down the street while the officer holds on to the door before being thrown from the car, skidding across the road several feet. The officer suffered minor injuries, according to police.
The officer was seen immediately pushing himself off the ground as he ran back toward the cop car.
The two pursued Lobo down the block before the video cuts off.
The assailant was apprehended a day later at a residence on Union Street and taken into custody.
Lobo was taken into custody by the officer he dragged down the street, according to police.
He was booked into the State Police-Middleboro Barracks.
He is wanted assault and battery on a police officer, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, negligent operation of motor vehicle, and trafficking in fentanyl, among other charges, according to the state police.
Douglas reposted the video onto his Facebook page, saying that he and the other trooper were “luckily not hurt during the incident.”
