        GREEN TOWNSHIP — A Ludlow, Ky., man and woman were charged with robbery and assault stemming from a Friday store theft and the dragging of a police officer who became entangled in the getaway car, Hamilton County sheriff's deputies said.

        Christopher Maxwell, 30, of the 400 block of Elm Street, was charged Friday night with robbery, assault on an officer and resisting arrest.

        He was later found to have 14 warrants for his arrest on charges including drug abuse, DUI and carrying a concealed weapon, deputies said.

        Tami Bryan, 19, of the 400 block of Somerset Street, was arrested Saturday on charges of complicity to robbery and felonious assault on a police officer.

        The sheriff's department said Mr. Maxwell left Dillard's on Glenway Avenue with $2,000 worth of merchandise, struck an officer in the jaw, then fled. He was apprehended 15 minutes later.

        Ms. Bryan is accused of driving the getaway car, and dragging a sheriff's deputy 20 yards when his uniform became attached to her 1995 Dodge Neon, police said.

        The name and the condition of the deputy were not available.
