A Marion man is facing a battery by means of a deadly weapon charge after police say he drug a police officer about 10 feet with his vehicle while attempting to flee a traffic stop earlier this year, according to court records unsealed this week.

Police arrested Dustin Latrell Mitchell, 32, Tuesday in connection with felony charges filed following a high-speed police chase on April 16. Investigators say they located a vehicle in the Gas City Taco Bell drive thru matching a description provided by a caller who reported a possible intoxicated driver near the 259 exit of I-69.
