Video: Fla. cop dragged by car during traffic stop

Video of a Florida traffic stop shows a driver speeding off and an officer springing into action.

The Fort Myers officer jumped into the moving car through the driver-side door, and while the officer escaped uninjured, the driver is now in the Lee County Jail.

"One of the officers is reaching in an attempt to extract the driver he's caught in the vehicle and he has a choice to make — take a chance of getting run over by the vehicle or get inside the vehicle he chose to get in the vehicle and attempt to stop it," explains Fort Myers Police Department Captain Dennis Eads.
