Report: Officer dragged by fleeing shoplifter's car

A police sergeant clung to a shoplifting suspect for about 15 feet while the suspect allegedly attempted to speed off in a white Pontiac Grand Prix Tuesday, according to a Columbus Police report. Sgt. Dawn Tuning, 48, was working part time at Columbus Park Crossing on Whittlesey Boulevard when she received reports of a shoplifter at Kohl's. She confronted two suspects — a man and a woman — and attempted to place the man into custody. But the man allegedly pushed her to the ground.
