Once arriving on the scene, officers identified two female suspects inside an Audi SUV who refused to cooperate when asked to step outside the vehicle. When the passenger side door was opened, the driver put the SUV in reverse and pinned an officer between the Audi and another vehicle.

The officer was transported to the hospital after suffering minor injuries to his back and legs, but has since been released.

Police said the SUV "sustained significant damage to the passenger door as it was folded against the front fender."
