    Jeremy Selby is accused of being drunk when he allegedly dragged a police officer during a traffic stop.

    A man who is no stranger to law enforcement found himself in even more trouble after he allegedly dragged an officer during a traffic stop.

    Jeremy Selby, 27, is accused of a litany of charges including resisting arrest, DUI, reckless endangerment, heroin possession and more charges.

    A Wilmington Police Officer pulled over Selby’s Saturn Aura after the Wilmington resident allegedly turned the wrong way down the 1400 block Lancaster Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to police.

    During the traffic stop, officers saw what appeared to be an open container of alcohol in the car. Police say the officers also noticed the Selby slurred his speech and had bloodshot eyes.

    The officers ordered Selby to the car off but instead they say he threw several bags of heroin out of the car and drove off, according to investigators.

    An officer reached into the vehicle to try and get Selby out but Selby allegedly continued to drive off, trying to push the officer out of the window.

    The officer won the battle and was able to stop the car about a block away.

    The officer wasn’t hurt.

    Selby, a convicted felon on monitored release, was arrested and sent to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution unable to post $45,000 cash bail.
