video of PCSO grabbing key after being dragged along by car

dramatic body-cam footage of a teenage driver attempting to speed away from a PCSO, dragging the officer along the road.

PCSO Kieron Poole feared for his life before managing to grab the key as the motorist drove through a car park.

Muhammad Nadeem, who was 18 at the time of the incident in Smethwick, West Midlands, dragged the PCSO along for almost 30 metres, ignoring shouted pleas to halt the car.

A two-minute bodycam video released by the force shows PCSO Poole following Nadeem and summoning colleagues to help make an arrest.

Wow, that does sound scary, lucky he came out of that relatively unscathed, could have ended very differently. Nice to see such dedication to catching criminals but always remember, safety first. Easy to say with hindsight of course.
