Lexington police say an officer was dragged by a truck that took off during a traffic stop Friday morning on Floyd Drive.

Police say officers were looking for a stolen vehicle, and found it at 8:20 a.m. Friday, with a man identified as Theodore Samuel Sharp inside.

According to investigators, the officer asked for license, and the driver denied having one; that is when police say the officer tried pulling him out of the vehicle, a blue Ford Exhibition.

The car at 836 Floyd Drive and has been returned to the owner. Police have not found Sharp. The officer was not injured.
