The traffic stop occurred about 10 p.m. on Mannasota Avenue in the Belair-Edison neighborhood. Batts said Dean's car had rolled through a stop sign and was pulled over by plainclothes officers operating a marked vehicle. He said the officers identified themselves and noticed Dean was "extremely nervous."

"When the officer on the driver's side stepped away, [Dean] started the vehicle and drove off," Batts said.

Investigators are not sure how the officer got tangled up with the vehicle; Batts said the officer had invoked the state Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights, which provides officers a period of time to provide a statement.

Shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday, an officer tried to stop a car for a traffic violation in northeast Baltimore. Dean was behind the wheel and allegedly tried to flee the scene, dragging the officer for “several blocks,” a police spokesman said.

The officer fired his weapon, striking Dean. The officer was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and has since been released.
