Officer Dragged 1,000 Feet Along I-80 in S.F. During Traffic Stop

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A California Highway Patrol officer was injured Friday afternoon after he was dragged up to 1,000 feet on a San Francisco freeway.

The CHP says the motorcycle officer stopped a Jeep Friday evening on Interstate 80 near the Bay Bridge.

KNTV-TV reports that the driver provided false identification and then drove off, dragging the officer, who suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities say the Jeep struck two other cars before it stopped and the woman at the wheel was arrested.
