A millionaire was arrested on a charge of assaulting a police officer after allegedly dragging a police officer with his Jaguar, following a traffic stop, police in the United Kingdom said.

London police said that they have arrested 77-year-old Harry Djanogly, after being accused of hitting the accelerator when Officer Robert McDonald grabbed hold of the steering wheel.

Djanogly was charged with dangerous driving and assaulting a police officer. In court, Djanogly told the court that he was speeding to a hospital because he believed that his wife’s life was in danger.

When he was pulled over for speeding in his silver Jaguar, he explained his situation to the officer and drove away. After stopping at a red light, McDonald came through the window and grabbed the steering wheel.

Djanogly claims that he then accidentally took his foot off the brake. He denied putting his foot on the accelerator. The officer suffered leg injuries and stress.
