Man Drags SC Officer During Stop

Authorities say a Lenoir, NC, man faces 10 counts of assault with intent to kill after dragging a Myrtle Beach police officer during a traffic stop and ramming into other cars to try and get him to let go.

Jail records show 25-year-old Clark Tuttle remains at the Horry County jail Saturday.

Police told The Sun News of Myrtle Beach that an officer pulled over Tuttle on Ocean Boulevard on Wednesday.

Authorities say Tuttle drove off with the officer still holding the driver's side door, then rammed four other vehicles, trying to get him away from the car.

Police say they had to shoot Tuttle with a Taser to subdue him.

Tuttle says his son is a college student who has never been in trouble before.

    Now is the time that he claims he was affraid, or he was abused as a child etc.. I say he was failed by whoever raised him.

    Remember that the word "no" is in Lenoir and maybe you will finally be able to spell it correctly in your articles. People, please proofread!!!!

    WITN guys, I don't know which one of you edited this article or if it came straight from the AP like this, but you need to rework it a little bit. Which Tuttle is which, the later Tuttle was never introduced into the article before just calling him Tuttle. Please clarify. Who is Tuttles father?
