Officer dragged 53 feet



The Cincinnati Enquirer

ANDERSON TWP. - A Hamilton County Sheriff's deputy was injured Monday when he was dragged more than 50 feet by a fleeing woman's vehicle near the PNC Bank on Beechmont Avenue.

Deputy Greg McDonald was one of several officers who responded to the bank at 7391 Beechmont Ave. about 12:20 p.m. for a report of a disturbance in the bank.

Authorities said someone at the bank called 911 when a female customer became agitated during an argument with a teller. The woman was driving away in a pickup truck when two deputies arrived, and attempted to stop her.

The pickup struck the two officers, and dragged deputy McDonald 53 feet, running over his foot before fleeing. The injured deputy's condition was not available Monday night. The other deputy was not injured.

The suspect, described as a 43-year-old woman, 5-foot 5 with brown hair and eyes, was still being sought late Monday. She was driving a 2002 gray Ford pickup truck, with two broken side mirrors.

Police involved in the search for the suspect Monday afternoon searched a residence in Pierce Township in the 3700 block of Hopper Hill Road in Clermont County.
