Park Rapids police officer Carrie Parks returned to work at 6 a.m. Wednesday, one day after being dragged two blocks by a fleeing shoplifting suspect.

"She's got some road rash," husband Scott Parks said.

Parks, chief deputy for the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department, said his wife reached into the open door of a car after a shoplifting suspect was uncooperative in the Walmart parking lot while officers were trying to interview her.
