Cop clings to hood of car as motorist speeds away (VIDEO)

An police officer in Chandigarh, India, clung to the hood of a car after one motorist sped off in the middle of a traffic stop Sunday evening.

Motorist Matka Chowk drove off with traffic constable Davinder Singh still on the hood. Singh bashed in the windshield with his helmet and Chowk was forced to slow down, but the officer eventually fell from the vehicle.

Singh suffered serious injuries and was transported to the Government Multi-Specialty Hospital.

Chowk was arrested and charged with attempted murder.
