Wild police chase caught on tape

Some dramatic video shows a police chase that injured a detective.

The video, taken from one of the cruisers involved in the chase, shows police in Campbell County chasing after a burglary suspect Saturday night.

Investigators say it began after a detective spotted the suspect, 41-year-old Joseph Huffman, in the parking lot of a gas station.

Police say when the detective approached Huffman's car, he sped off, dragging the detective 20 feet, before running over him.

After police arrested Huffman several miles away, he said he was sorry.

The injured detective was treated and released from a hospital.

Huffman pleaded not guilty Monday to several charges, including assault on an officer and wanton endangerment.
