Update: Adds information on officer's condition and suspect's vehicle description.
A Metro Police officer is recovering this morning after he was dragged by a vehicle as he attempted to make an arrest during a routine traffic stop Wednesday night.
The incident happened when Field Training Officer Carlos Anderson and his partner stopped a vehicle at 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Arrington and Meridian streets in East Nashville.
It turned out that the driver, Jeffrey Lee Story, 33, had pending arrest warrants on charges including domestic violence. When Anderson attempted to arrest Story, the driver took off dragging the officer about 30 yards, police said.
Anderson, who suffered road burns to his hands and knees, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-lifethreatening injuries. He was released Thursday morning.
Police are still looking for the suspect who fled the scene. He abandoned his truck and is now believed to be driving a blue 2001 Ford Mustang bearing Tennessee tag 691-WYP.
