NASHVILLE — The suspect who dragged an officer while riding an ATV last Saturday has been arrested.

Walter Moss, 30, was driving his four-wheeler down a downtown street when Officer John Bourque attempted to stop him, WKRN reports. The officer was dragged by the ATV then thrown into a metal barrier along the road.

“It’s kind of makes me angry that these guys say, we don’t care what the law is, we don’t care about anyone else but ourselves,” says Bourque.

Last Saturday, a Nashville street was illegally filled with about 100 ATVs, motorcycles and dirt bikes. It was the second day in a row that the off-road vehicles drove on major roads throughout the city.

Originally, Bourque said he was going after another ATV motorist, but Moss struck him and sent him flying into a barricade.

“I don’t think they’re out there to hurt an officer, it seems like they just want to take over the streets because they can, because they’re a large group,” he says.

Moss faces six charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, reckless endangerment and evading arrest.
