Officer Brennan was patrolling the area of the MVC when he was called in to investigate a fraudulent document claim at the agency. Police say that the suspect was trying to forge and obtain fraudulent documents by using a fake identity.
The man quickly left the MVC. When the officer tried to talk to the suspect inside his car, the suspect reportedly put the car into reverse and dragged him.
The suspect was found several hours later by Toms River police. He reportedly abandoned the car he was driving in, but was found driving a similar car with temporary Pennsylvania license plates.
Police have not yet been able to identify the man because he allegedly had multiple fake IDs inside his car.
Officer Brennan was taken to the hospital to be checked out, but his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any information about the whereabouts of the woman accomplice should contact the Toms River Police Department at 732-349-0150.
