American Police Officer Dragged Along The Road By A Car In Shocking Bodycam Footage

Footage has emerged on LiveLeak of a police officer being dragged by a moving car as a suspect tried to get away.

The video was recorded by the officer's bodycam, showing a young man called Brandon Adams attempting to evade the police officer. The police official had been responding to a call about shoplifting when he stopped Adams outside a Shell petrol station on a separate charge.

After seeing the incident, the station's manager said: "I was just shocked. It took me a second to run to him and I saw all of his stuff was ripped up and everything."

The officer reportedly became entangled in Adams' seatbelt after stopping him as a suspect in a fake cheque-cashing case.

Major Larry Branson of Savannah Chatham Police said the officer in question was unharmed but Adams now faces much more serious charges.
