A Belle Isle police officer is in the hospital after he was run over by a trailer during a traffic stop, according to the department.

Police said officers pulled over a vehicle towing a trailer Wednesday morning just before 3 a.m. because the trailer did not have working lights.

Investigators said the officers asked the driver, identified as Carlos Jerome Miller, to step out of the vehicle after they smelled marijuana coming from the cab. The man ignored their commands and began searching for something in the vehicle, according to a news release.

The officers then pulled the man from the vehicle, but during the struggle, one officer was knocked to the ground and run over by the trailer, police said. According to an arrest affidavit, Miller pushed the officer to the ground and because the vehicle was not placed in park, it began to roll forward and went over the officer.

The man was eventually subdued, and the officer was taken to the hospital, where he is in stable condition.

Investigators said they found drugs and a gun inside the vehicle.

Miller faces multiple charges, including aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting with violence.
