A Jeffco sheriff’s investigator who confronted a suspected car thief Aug. 19 was dragged down Santa Fe Drive by the stolen vehicle and suffered serious injuries.

When Investigator Art Peterson, 52, approached the stolen truck, the female driver sped away, dragging him down the street. Peterson then shot the driver at least once; she was being treated at Denver Health Medical Center.

Peterson was in serious condition at Swedish Medical Center but had made improvements since the accident, according to Jeffco sheriff’s spokesman Jim Shires.
