FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — A male suspect is facing numerous charges after Fayetteville police say he stole a police vehicle, dragging an officer behind it, struck an EMS worker and then fled the scene.

Police said in a news release that the incident started Sunday morning when police officers were dispatched with EMS units for a medical call and encountered the suspect, who was “agitated” and uncooperative.
