Florida police officer dragged by car

Cabrera told police that he and his fiancee were doing cocaine and heroin before Cusack found them unconscious in their vehicle, according to the police report.

Cusack, 47, approached a auto with two people inside, and he has a conversation with them. His uniform and shoes "were shredded from being dragged along the roadway", according to a police report. Cusack reached inside to prevent Cabrera from leaving, but, at a high rate of speed, the suspect dragged the officer.

Police said that there was a baggie of what appeared to be drugs visible in the vehicle, though it's not visible in the video.

Astonishingly, Cusack's heart-stopping brush with death was caught on his body camera, footage from which has been shared with the public.

Police with their guns drawn ordered the suspects out of the vehicle.

Police say the officer, Jon Cusack, arrived at the scene of a vehicle which had two people either asleep or unconscious inside.

Meanwhile, Cabrera continued to flee, police said.

All lanes of eastbound I-595 were closed during the takedown.

"We wish to thank our residents who have offered both support and prayers for the safety of our officers during this time". He has been with the Pembroke Pines Police Department for 19 years. He suffered road rash over much of his body and the soles of his boots were completely burned off.

"He's doing very, very good - good spirits".

The incident began when Cusack, a 20-year veteran of the Pembroke Pines police force, responded to a local resident's call about two people passed out inside a auto, ABC-affiliate KABC reported.

Marano said Cusack isn't letting the incident put a damper on his holiday plans.
