COLCHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) – Police are asking the public for help finding a man who they say dragged an officer with a car, injuring the officer.

Colchester police are looking for Andrew Brace, 39, of St. Albans. They say he faces multiple potential charges including aggravated assault and eluding police.

The search stems from an incident Thursday morning. Colchester police were called to Conquest Circle at about 4:20 a.m. for a report of two people in a car who were unresponsive.

Officers found the car had been reported stolen out of Burlington.

Police say they managed to wake up one man in the car, who they later identified as Brace. But when they tried to take him into custody, they say he threw the car in reverse, dragging a Colchester officer about 50 feet. They say he then sped off.

Police released body-camera video of officers trying to arrest Brace.

The officer had injuries that were not life-threatening.

The stolen car Brace was driving is a dark blue Genesis G809 with Colorado license plate D0UT58.

Anyone who knows where to find Brace is asked to call the police in Colchester at 802-264-5555.
