CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Missouri Man Drags State Trooper During Traffic Stop

(KSHB) Video of a Kansas City man dragging a Missouri State Trooper with his car for several hundred feet in July 2012 has been released.

A Clay County Judge sentenced Alan Hampton to 30 years in prison.

During Wednesday's sentencing the court watched the short, but powerful, video captured that July morning. The dash cam video was captured from Missouri Highway Patrol Corporal Cody Dunfee's patrol car.

"As I approached the car, I noticed what appeared to be a black square object in his waistband," Dunfee said. "I kind of figured that he was trying to hide something in the car. I didn't know what it was at the time."
