Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -- According to police, the man accused of hitting Sergeant Larina Blad had a blood-alcohol level of 0.173 -- that's more than twice the legal limit.

Investigators say when Sergeant Blad stopped 24-year-old Irving Cartagena for speeding, he took off... running the officer over and then dragging her.

Cartagena was arrested a short time later. Sergeant Blad was taken to a local hospital.
