San Francisco Police Officer dragged by suspected DUI Driver

Early Friday morning, October 23, 2009, a San Francisco Police Officer contacted Antonio Dalballo after stopping him for a traffic violation in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood. When the officer approached Mr. Dalballo he smelled the order of an alcoholic beverage and began a DUI investigation.

When the officer ordered Mr. Dalballo to exit his vehicle he ignored the officer’s commands and began to reach for his ignition. When the officer reached for the car keys Mr. Dalballo grabbed the officer’s arm and took off speeding and colliding with several cars while dragging the officer.

The officer was eventually thrown to the ground and Mr. Dalballo was arrested a short time later. He was booked on suspicion of felony aggravated assault on an officer, felony drunken driving with injury, evading a police officer and marijuana possession.
