FORT COLLINS - A Windsor police officer who was dragged 70 feet Friday night as he tried to stop a man from driving the wrong way out of the Budweiser Events Center was released from the hospital Saturday.

The officer, whose identity has not been released, had serious but nonlife-threatening injuries and was released from a hospital Saturday, a Windsor police spokesman said.

The officer was working traffic outside a Harlem Globetrotters show at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland about 7 p.m. when Richard Schwartzenberger shouted at him that he wanted to turn left where traffic cones forced cars right.

The driver argued with the officer before turning left anyway. The officer tried to stop the car by reaching in the window and turning off the car. He was dragged about 70 feet.

Another officer saw the incident and pulled the driver over.

Schwartzenberger, a Windsor resident, was arrested and taken to the Larimer County Detention Center, where he was being held on charges that included vehicular assault, driving under the influence, resisting arrest, reckless driving and reckless endangerment.
