Traffic inspector is dragged for more than 1000ft after trying to arrest motorist

Updated: 

An Argentinian driver dragged a traffic inspector for around 1,300ft after he tried to arrest her.

The 61-year-old woman had been pulled over by the inspector in San Isidro, a northern suburb of Buenos Aires. The event was a routine check but she failed to produce her car documents and he tried to detain her.

It was at this point that the woman allegedly drove into the inspector, according to the Argentinian newspaper La Nacion, trapping him on the bonnet.

The inspector clung on to the bonnet as the woman drove for hundred of metres, as can be seen in the video above. Eventually he manages to jump free of the car at a crossroads, suffering a fractured knee in the incident. The driver then doubles back to get away but is eventually caught by police officers.

The woman is now being held for attempted murder.
