  • Florida police officer dragged by car

Then the driver speeds off with Cusack hanging on to the door and the side of the vehicle.

Cusack is a 19-year-veteran of the Pembroke Pines Police Department.

According to the Pembroke Pines Police Department, the harrowing event occurred after a concerned resident reported that two people were believed to be unconscious-possibly due to an overdose-inside of a parked vehicle. The auto lurches forward and Cusack shouts mostly inaudibly as the wind-soaked audio crackles.

Police body camera footage shows the moment a Florida officer is dragged for more than half a mile after trying to stop a driver he suspected was under the influence of drugs.

The officer was taken to hospital and was being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Rose McGowan slams Meryl Streep over silent protest at Golden Globes
When asked by Extra if she was planning to wear black, the 68-year-old actress didn't give an answer. "I don't know", she replied. Actress Rose McGowan has slammed Meryl Streep over a planned silent protest at the Golden Globes .

"He can't walk, but he's going, he's determined", said Jeff Marano, president of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association."He was in good spirits and had a positive attitude and obviously was just glad to be alive".

When the suspect finally slowed his speed as he approached the Century Village exit located at 129 Avenue and Pembroke Road, our officer determined this to be the safest opportunity for him to release his hold and to roll away from the vehicle's tires.

Police said the vehicle got onto northbound Interstate 75 before continuing east on I-595.

Cabrera, police say, woke up and put the vehicle into drive. He also admitted to using cocaine and heroin before the footage began.

Cabrera was arrested on suspicion of committing attempted murder of a law enforcement officer; fleeing and eluding; driving with a suspended license and reckless driving.
