Fl Deputy drug almost 100 yards while conducting a traffic stop, suspect faces charges for attempted

SEMINOLE, Fla. (WWSB) - They were some frightening moments for a sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop in Florida.

Authorities say Rocky Rudolph faces attempted murder charges after dragging a sheriff deputy about 100 yards.

The incident started as a routine traffic stop over window tinting. Rudolph appeared to become agitated before Seminole County Deputy Aaron Blais was dragged twice. Video shows Blais clutching onto the side of the car as it speeds away and hanging on for dear life.

The deputy managed to shoot Rudolph in the leg. Deputies say Rudolph quickly lost control of his car and ran away.

More than seven hours later he was arrested.

Deputy Blais is doing just fine, but Rudolph will face a judge once he gets out of the hospital.
