A New London police officer was dragged by a car after a driver took off Tuesday morning.
It happened on Westomere Terrace around 6:15 a.m.
The officer asked the driver, later identified as 25-year-old Kyndrel Dawson, to get out of the car, but he instead drove away, dragging the officer for about a block, according to police.
Dawson was spotted by Groton Town Police a short time later and ran off on foot along I-95 before finally being taken into custody. He is being held on $250,000 bond.
