verona policeFor those of you who spotted a bit of police activity in the center of Verona today, here’s what we know about what happened.

Around noon, a Verona Police Department officer was attempting to remove a person from a vehicle from behind a business on Bloomfield Avenue. Instead of complying, the as-yet unidentified male started his vehicle and tried to leave the area. The officer–also unidentified as of now–was dragged a short distance as the motorist fled.

The officer was taken to the hospital, treated for some minor leg injuries and released.

We’ll bring you more details when we have them.
