Man Who Dragged Officer by Car Set Free Under NJ Bail Reform

KEARNY-Kearny police officer Luis Moran was responding to a call from a woman who had her pain medication stolen from her.  After pointing out the suspect, 19 year old Wesley Carrion of Maplewood, Officer Moran approached the subject who was standing near a parked car.

Carrion got in the car and Moran attempted to apprehend him, but the subject put the vehicle into gear and drove away, dragging officer Moran approximately 30 feet before he could free himself from the vehicle.

Police later caught Carrion and he was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, eluding and reckless driving.

He was processed and released by the courts, set free without bail under New Jersey’s Bail Reform Act.
