Man Arrested In Dixon, IL Chase

Updated:

Police in Dixon, Ill. announced the arrest of a man who led them on a chase last month and injured an officer.

Vincent McGinnis faces numerous felony charges related to an incident on September 1, 2013 that began with a disturbance call in the 800 block of Fellows. Police say when he saw the responding squad car, McGinnis ran to his car. That's when an officer reached into the car to prevent McGinnis from putting it into gear. Instead, the officer was dragged for a short distance before letting go. The officer suffered a leg injury and has since made a full recovery.

Police say McGinnis took off and after a short chase, crashed into a tree. McGinnis is still recovering from his injuries, but turned himself in on several charges including aggravated battery to a police officer, resisting, fleeing and driving under the influence.
