A Lincoln man who sped away from an arresting officer, dragging the policeman, has been sentenced to time served and released.

Thirty-three-year-old Jermaine Dabney was sentenced to a year in jail. Because he had spent the last year in jail awaiting trial, he was released.

Prosecutor say Lincoln Police Officer Luke Bonkiewicz stopped Dabney's vehicle last November and learned that Dabney was wanted on a warrant. When the officer ordered Dabney out of his vehicle, Dabney refused, rolled up his window on the officer's arms and sped off, dragging Bonkiewicz nearly 300 feet.

A Lancaster County jury found Dabney guilty in August of operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest, but not guilty of assaulting an officer.
