Driver accused of striking 2 military recruiters in Twin Cities

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Ramsey County prosecutors will consider charges against a man accused of striking two U.S. Army recruiters and dragging one of them under his SUV.

Police say the two uniformed recruiters were struck Tuesday afternoon as they walked near the Crossroads shopping center in Roseville. Officials say one of the recruiters, a 42-year-old Circle Pines man, was trapped under the Jeep Cherokee and was dragged about three-quarters of a mile before he was able to free himself.

Roseville police say the recruiter suffered a broken leg and other severe injuries which are not believed to be life threatening. The second victim, a 29-year-old Brooklyn Center man, was thrown over the hood of the SUV, but was able to walk away with minor injuries.

Police arrested the driver at a car dealership in Roseville.
