It’s not always easy being a police officer. There are a lot of nuts in the world. But it’s your job to serve and protect, but sometimes when you serve, you are not always in the best situation, especially when it comes to traffic stops.
A police officer in Aurora, Colorado had a tough day at work a couple of weeks ago. The officer pulled over a man for a routine traffic stop, the officer asked to see his drivers license, and the driver took off.
Police have identified the driver as 34-year-old Jason Moore. He has a prior history of aggravated robbery and police consider him dangerous, though he did not have a known outstanding warrant before the incident. He now faces a charge of second-degree assault on a peace officer, a class 4 felony.
In this picture you can see Moore as he’s speeding away from the officer. In a quick reaction the officer grabs the car and is dragged down the street.
Here’s the body cam footage.
Fortunately the officer was only dragged for a short distance and suffered only minor injuries.
I suspect Moore will have a very tough day when the police finally find him. And they will.
