DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say a convicted Florida felon ended up dragging two officers who were hanging onto his car windows when he fled a traffic stop.

Officers say they saw Kary Jarvis run a stop sign and pulled him over.

When police asked to search the car, he allegedly sped away while both officers hung onto the windows.

Daytona Beach Police say Jarvis dragged one officer about 30 feet.

The other officer fell and hit a tree. Jarvis crashed into a retention ditch and was taken into custody at gunpoint Friday.

The officers were treated at the hospital and released.

He is facing several charges including aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.
