Lee County-- A traffic stop turned into a wild ride for a Lee County deputy. Captain Lyle Mathis stopped 28-year-old Tavoya Tarell Clyde on U.S. 19 south near Sandy Beach Road Saturday afternoon.

When he couldn't show a driver's license, he took off with Deputy Mathis hanging onto his arm. Deputy Mathis was dragged 400 yards along the highway.

"Witnesses said that when Officer Mathis hit, that he bounced about three foot up in the air, so he hit pretty hard," said Lee County Sheriff Chief Dennis Parker.

Deputy Mathis has a sprained back and neck and cuts to his arms, knees and head, but he may return to work tomorrow. Clyde is the Lee County Jail facing multiple charges, including kidnapping with bodily injury and aggravated assault.

The kidnapping charge carries a life sentence.
