SANDY, Utah A Sandy police officer was able to avoid serious injury early Thursday after a man he had just pulled over took off while the officer was still hanging out of his car.

About 2:20 a.m. an officer pulled over a Porsche for a routine traffic stop near 8200 South State. The driver acted very jittery and nervous when the officer approached the vehicle, said Sandy police Sgt. Victor Quezada.
