UPDATE: Man Facing Attempted Murder Charge After Dragging A Florida Deputy

We recently shared an ABC News clip showing a man being confronted by a cop during a traffic stop. Apparently, the officer stopped him for his tinted windows then claimed that he smelled marijuana in the drivers vehicle and wanted him to get out. Minutes into the clip, the man who appears to be scared for his life then tries to flee but drags the officer in the process.
