GULF BREEZE, Fla – A Florida Police officer is recovering after he was dragged and run over by a vehicle he stopped for speeding.

Sgt. Kerstan Tatro’s dashcam captured the entire confrontation, including when his own daughter pulled up to help.

Tatro says the vehicle was going 65 in a 35 miles per hour zone.

Once he got to the vehicle, he says he could tell the driver was under the influence of drugs.

As Tatro reaches for the door handle, the driver steps on the gas and speeds off.

Several people come to his aid immediately.

Soon after, Tatro’s teenage daughter arrives.

“Dad, are you OK?” she asks on dash cam video from the incident.

“That’s my dad!” she later says.

The suspect may have gotten away, but two vehicles chased the offender down the road.

Later, police arrested 30-year-old Amy Giorgio.

Police say she was under the influence of several narcotics.

Officer Tatro suffered a compound fracture to his right arm.
