Investigators Say Deputy Was Dragged 20 Feet By Drunk Driver

A Rusk County man is behind bars for dragging a deputy during a traffic stop, then leading officers on a high speed chase.

It happened on November 3rd around three in the afternoon near 50th Street and Highway 8 in Polk County.

43-year-old Charles G. Allers is now charged with five felonies.

Prosecutors say Allers was stopped by a deputy for drunk driving.
Court documents show Allers suddenly took off, dragging that deputy for about 20 feet. That deputy called for help, and started chasing Allers at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.

Prosecutors say he was finally caught after hitting a truck on Highway 8.

Allers is in the Polk County jail on a $10,000 cash bond.
Court records show he's had five previous OWI convictions.
