An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper was injured on Saturday during a traffic stop in Portage County, troopers at the Ravenna Patrol Post reported.

OSHP told's Meg Shaw that Sgt. Jeff Greene initiated a traffic stop near mile marker 1 on State Route 225 just before 7:30 p.m.

Greene asked the driver to shut off the car and step outside. The driver then re-started the car and drove away with Greene's arm still inside the car.

Officials said the trooper was dragged for nearly 50 feet by the suspect's car.

After Greene was able to pull away from the car, he pursued the car for nearly six miles, traveling at a speed upwards of 100 MPH.

The chase ended near Alliance after authorities were able to identify the suspect and obtain a vehicle description.

The suspect is still at large, however a description hasn't been released.

Greene was taken to the hospital for evaluation and has since been released. He suffered minor injuries in the incident.
