FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Two men were arrested after police say they dragged an officer with their car for more than 130 feet.
According to a probable cause report, Melvin Sims was playing loud music in his car near West Avenue and Dickson Street.
The officer recognized Sims and knew he had a suspended driver's license.
Investigators said the officer approached the car and ordered Sims to "stop."
At that point, the report states the officer reached into the car to stop it, but Sims kept driving.
As the officer was hanging onto the passenger side door, that is when police said Leon Rucker pushed him off.
The officer fell to the ground and injured his knees.
Investigators said the men accelerated at a high rate of speed and drove into oncoming traffic.
Police were able to track the men down at a home in Fayetteville.
The report states Sims told police he knew the officer would probably get hurt as he drove away.
Both men were booked into Washington County Jail and are facing several charges including 2nd Degree Battery and Fleeing.
