New body camera footage shows a Boynton Beach Police officer being dragged by a car during a traffic stop last month.
The female officer was on routine patrol when she pulled over 47-year-old Timothy Tristan Jones for a traffic infraction back on Jan. 17, according to an arrest report released along with the video on Wednesday.
The report said Jones got out of his car but refused the officer's commands to sit on the front of her patrol car and kept placing his hands in his pockets and fidgeting.
Jones started to walk back to his car and continued to ignore the officer's orders for him to stop, so she used her Taser on him, the report said. The Taser hit Jones in the back and he fell into the car, the report said.
The officer reached in to the car to remove the keys but Jones pushed her to the ground and started to drive away with the officer caught partially in the door, the report said.
As Jones fled, the officer was dragged for about 350 feet, causing one of her shoes and a sock to fall off before she was able to free herself. She was hospitalized and treated for road rash, the report said.
Jones fled the scene but was later arrested on charges including aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest with violence. Attorney information wasn't available.
