She tried to get him out through the passenger door, but the suspect tried to drive away. The woman held on for a moment, then the suspect ran over her leg, leading to soft tissue damage that required a trip to the hospital, according to an incident report.

The man fled the scene, and police started a manhunt that ran from Feb. 28 until he was arrested on March 10.

The perp has been identified as Andre D. Patton, 39. 

His tentative charges include first-degree reckless endangering safety, operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent and a parole violation.
