Ennis Surratt III
ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene man was indicted Thursday for allegedly dragging a police officer with his car while driving drunk.

Ennis Surratt III, 52, was pulled over in October 2012. Surratt allegedly grabbed onto the police officer and started to drive off when the officer leaned into the driver's side window to talk to him. 

The officer sustained minor injuries and police used spikes to stop Surratt's car. 

A Taylor County grand jury indicted Surratt for aggravated assault on a peace officer, driving while intoxicated, evading arrest and tampering with evidence.
