Jeffco deputy dragged by suspect's fleeing vehicle

By Ramsey Scott

A fleeing suspect dragged a Jeffco deputy with his vehicle Thursday night, leaving the officer with minor injuries. 

The incident occurred in the 5600 block of Yank Street near Golden after the deputy was dispatched to investigate a suspicious parked vehicle. As the deputy was speaking to the driver, the vehicle — a soft-top gold Jeep with an Ohio license plate — accelerated away.
