Savannah, Ga. – Police in Georgia are looking for a man who was caught on camera dragging a police officer with his vehicle.

The Savannah police officer was wearing a body camera when he pulled over Brandon Adams outside of a gas station Saturday night.

The officer stopped the 23-year-old to ask him about a shoplifting report.

On the video, you hear the officer ask Adams to take the keys out of the ignition. Then you hear Adams say he has to call his brother.

After the officer tells him to get out of the car, Adams speeds off.

The officer tries to hang onto the moving car,  but eventually falls off.

Police say the officer is OK.
