A drunk mother-of-three dragged a screaming policewoman 130 feet along a road by her knees as she drove off in a BMW trying to avoid an arrest for drink driving – in a case eerily reminiscent to the death of PC Andrew Harper.
Chantelle Owen, 36, pulled PC Amy Greenwood along a residential road in Bury, Manchester, as the officer tried to prevent her from speeding off on December 20 last year.
PC Greenwood lost her footing during the chase and was dragged along the street by her knees, before she was eventually able to haul herself up and grab the steering wheel.
Dramatic bodycam footage showed PC Greenwood screaming and ordering Owen to stop her car.
Owen eventually stopped the car, but refused to exit the vehicle and had to be forcibly removed by officers.
A subsequent breath test showed she was double the drink drive limit.
Owen was granted police bail, but while awaiting trial for the incident, she was caught drink driving on a further two occasions in the following two months.
