Authorities say the incident occurred around 9 a.m. Wednesday, when the Newark officer saw an SUV he considered suspicious, so he walked toward the vehicle. The SUV’s driver then accelerated and briefly dragged the officer before driving away. The vehicle crashed a few blocks away, and both men left the SUV and ran off into a nearby cemetery.
