LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police have arrested a man accused of dragging an off duty metro corrections officer.
Mark Gering witnessed a hit and run accident in Shively Wednesday, which prompted him to pull the suspect's car over.
When Gering identified himself, the driver, 89-year-old Roy Finley, rolled up his window and drove away. Gering got caught in the window and was dragged a short distance before he freed himself.
Gering suffered injuries to his legs, arms, and back. Fortunately, police were able to track Finley's car to a home on Glenrock Road.
Finley is facing charges of wanton endangerment, assault, and leaving the scene of an accident.
