Man Pleads Guilty for Dragging Police Officer With Car

YORK, Pa. (AP) — A Maryland man has admitted his role in dragging a Pennsylvania police officer with a car.

The York Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2qrDmUd ) that 39-year-old Roberto Tabares Jr., of Rockville, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and reckless endangerment Monday. Tabares will serve 11 ½ to 23 months in prison if his plea agreement is accepted at sentencing June 29.

Tabares and two other Maryland residents were arrested for a 2015 incident in Glen Rock. Authorities say Southern Regional police officer Michael Storeman responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle in a convenience store parking lot when he saw one of the occupants injecting herself with what Storeman believed was heroin.

Police say a man inside the car pinned Storeman when he tried to open the passenger door as Tabares drove off.

Storeman suffered various injuries.
