ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A car thief trying to escape from police grabbed a police officer's shirt and dragged her for nearly a block last night as the car made its getaway, police say. The man who did it is still on the loose.

The 34-year-old police officer suffered a broken wrist and cuts and bruises to her arms, hands and knees. She was treated at a local hospital and is expected to be okay, said St. Louis Police Department spokeswoman Erica Van Ross.
